Free Stargazing Fridays at 9pm

Beginning in June, every clear Friday night, Wyoming Stargazing will host free public stargazing events at Rendezvous Park.

During the stargazing events giant Dobsonian Telescope with a 20″ primary mirror will be provided to view planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, and more! They’ll also bring several iPads with the Star Walk application so you can explore the heavens.Stargazing photo

The telescopes are named after the late amateur astronomer John Dobson who designed the telescope mount used by those telescopes. John was also instrumental in popularizing amateur astronomy and amateur telescope building across the county.

Viewings take place on Fridays from 9:00-11:00pm all summer long beginning Friday, June 5th. Feel free to show up for whatever portion of the program works for you. Follow these directions. You will see their vehicle with big, red lights. Park there and follow the path to the right that enters R Park’s meadow.

These free, public stargazing events have been made possible by a generous grant from the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium, NASA Grant #NNX10AO95H.WY Stargazing logo
