Join the BAS at Harrison Bay State Park for the monthly Harrison Bay State Park Star Party! The BAS will have telescopes, binoculars, and night-sky experts eager to share the glories of the night sky.
There will be a nice variety of heavenly objects on display. The constellations of winter are in full swing with a great variety of amazing objects to observe. In addition to telescopic wonders, there will be constellation identification, stories, and more.
Stargazing begins at 6:00 pm and should last until 10 or so (we'll stay as long as people want to look into our telescopes or the Rangers kick us out ;)
In the event of inclement weather we will have a program in the Rec Hall starting at 6:00 pm and repeating at 8:00 pm.
This event is FREE and everyone is welcome!
