[DNR] Telescope clinic and stargazing at Mounds SP, Aug. 30
Start Date: 8/30/2014Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 8/30/2014
Entry Description
Those wanting a high-powered peek at the moon, Mars, Saturn, stars and other deep-space objects can visit Mounds State Park on Aug. 30.

Astronomy enthusiasts Steve and Debbie Russell will present an evening of stargazing along with the park naturalists. The Russells will set up their telescopes at 8 p.m. in the field by the swimming pool and will remain into the late evening. The naturalists will have astronomy crafts for kids from 8 p.m. until dark.

“Summer gives us rich views of the Milky Way,” Steve Russell said. “Saturn will be 867 million miles away but will look fabulous.”

Earlier in the day, the Russells will hold a clinic for those who own telescopes but aren’t sure how to properly use them. The public is encouraged to bring their telescopes to the nature center from 4 to 5 p.m. Those interested in owning a telescope are welcome to attend to gain information about the devices.

The program is free, though standard park entrance fees of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle apply.

Mounds State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2977.htm) is at 4306 Mounds Road, Anderson, 46017.
