Entry Description
An astronomy program at Charlestown State Park offers a chance for the public to explore the universe through telescopes on Oct. 12.

Charlestown Under the Stars is from 7 to 10:30 p.m. behind the Clark Shelter House. The event is a partnership with the Louisville Astronomical Society.

Telescopes of all shapes and sizes will allow visitors to observe craters on the moon, see Venus, Uranus and Neptune, and look beyond the solar system into the Milky Way at star birth places, dying suns, clusters of thousands of stars and more.

Visitors who arrive early can safely observe sunspots.

The program is also a chance to learn about kinds of telescopes. For telescope owners, astronomical society members will offer tips and assistance on how to set up and effectively use telescopes.

Regular park admission of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle applies, but the event is free.
