Go stargazing at Stilson: The first Thursday night of every month!
Wyoming Stargazing offers free, year-round, public stargazing events on the first Thursday of each month in the northwest corner of the Stilson lot behind the bus hut where there are no lights. There is a $10/person recommended donation.
Astronomy educators use one of their large aperture telescopes to show you planets, stars, planetary nebulae, galaxies, and more. There are also several iPads with the Star Walk application installed on them so you can explore the heavens while others are looking through the telescopes. Throughout the night astronomy educators will tell you everything you want to know about the objects you are viewing and answer all your other questions about astronomy. There is no need to reserve your spot in advance; You can come and go as you please. Visit wyomingstargazing.org.
