On Saturday, Feb. 11 and April 1, 2017 head over to the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens for their special (and FREE) Gazing in the Gardens event, made possible through a partnership with the Oglethorpe Astronomical Association.
After the sun sets around 6 p.m. and the sky darkens, search the Milky Way galaxy for stars and possibly planets with the naked eye or telescopes. The last quarter moon will not be up at all, so the sky will be extra dark for viewing. Join us on the Event Field for viewing through various-size telescopes that Association members (or you) bring. The evening wraps up at 9 p.m.
Use the Canebrake Road entrance and new parking lot at the new Visitor & Education Center! Dress for the evening weather, bring a favorite cold or hot beverage, lawn chair/blanket and snack basket (alcohol is prohibited). Be aware that fire ants may be under your blanket or chair on your particular chosen spot on the Event Field.
