Star Party at Cloudland Canyon State Park sponsored by the Staff and Friends of Cloudland Canyon State Park and conducted by the Barnard Astronomical Society of Chattanooga. Come see the wonders of the night sky through our telescopes!
The Orionid Meteor Shower will be at it's peak tonight, so we may see more shooting stars than usual. We will also be looking at and identifying the Constellations of Autumn. As always we will also be observing DSOs (Deep Sky Objects) like star clusters, nebulae and other galaxies like our own Milky Way.
Astronomy programs are FREE to all. Usual parking fee at the park applies.
The party will take place at the starting area for the Disc Golf Course at old tennis court area (the tennis courts have been removed). Follow the signs for the DISC GOLF COURSE. Directions are inside the park. Proceed straight past the entry kiosk for 1.2 miles and follow signs for the DISC GOLF COURSE. Immediately after you pass the campground(on your left) turn right towards the DISC GOLF COURSE and proceed 0.7 miles and make the first left, towards the DISC GOLF COURSE then proceed 0.3 miles to the beginning point of the DISC GOLF COURSE, which is also where the tennis courts used to be.
