Join us for a night of star gazing with The Piedmont Amateur Astronomers Club. Club members will be bringing their high powered telescopes and allowing the public to view cosmic objects, including the moon, Jupiter, galaxies, nebulas, and star clusters. This event will be held in memory of John Dobson–creator of the revolutionary Dobsonian telescope. The event will be held in the parking lot at the park office and is weather dependent. Rangers will be on duty and ALL TRAILS WILL BE CLOSED. Please approach the parking area with parking lights only, so the night vision of others will not be disturbed. Please park in the parking areas that are located before the office, the viewing area will be in the rear of the parking lot. Please do not park outside the gate. Everyone is invited to attend!
