Astronomy program set

On clear, dark nights, the glow produced by distant stars in our galaxy’s equatorial disk spills across the sky like a milky river. We call this the Milky Way. Visitors might see through binoculars or telescope star clouds, clusters, nebulae and dark lanes of interstellar dust and more.

Hosted by the High Bridge Trail State Park on Saturday from 8-10 p.m. this is a family friendly event. The program is free but parking fees apply. Held near the center of High Bridge.
