If you're never been to a stargazing pary I guarantee you it will be a delightful experience for all ages.
Seeing the Milky Way Galaxy undimmed by city lights is a sight to behold; it looks like a huge river of light flowing across the night skies.
And seeing the rings around the planet Saturn, the many moons of Jupiter, and just how red Mars actually appears close up will amaze and delight everyone.
This is the Milky Way Galaxy on a moonless night when it's at its brightest. Spectacular!
So gather up the family, pack a few snacks, and head on up to Norris Dam State Park either of the next two Saturday nights. The program starts at 8:45 pm with a short video and then everyone will go out into the parking lot by the Park swimming pool and look at stars, planets, and the moon.
The Knoxville Observers will have several telescopes set up to get a close up look at the heavenly bodies.
Fun for all ages and the price is one of my favorites, it's FREE.
