Spend a beautiful evening with the Crewe Astronomy Club gazing at the stars and learning about the night sky on Saturday from 8-9 p.m. Using hi-tech telescopes positioned in front of the Visitor Center at Sailor’s Creek Battlefield Historical State Park, guests will have the opportunity to look upon the red planet Mars, the planet Saturn with its beautiful rings and the planet Jupiter with its many moons. If you have your own telescope, bring it along. In addition, the facilitator of this event, Kim Kenny, will provide a presentation on how you, can become a backyard astronomer studying the celestial sky. This program is free to the public and family-friendly. For more information, contact the Sailor’s Creek Battlefield Historical State Park visitor center at (804) 561-7510, or email
