First Fridays Under the Stars

Friday, July 1, 2022 | 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Learn from a short indoor lecture about the upcoming events in the heavens. Then after the skies darken volunteers will help point out constellations and nebulae. Use the Charlottesville Astronomical Society’s telescopes or bring your own.

Free and open to all.

The Astronomy Presentation in the Education Center runs from 8:00 pm to 8:45 pm and then telescope viewing until 10:00 pm.  The observing session will be in the field next to the barn at the Ivy Creek Natural Area.

Cloudy skies cancel the outdoor portion.

This event will recur on the odd months throughout the year.
