Star Party

July 30 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Please Note: We’ve moved this event to Saturday so the skies will be clearer!

Join us Saturday July 30 from 9 – 11 pm here at Pumpkin Vine Family Farm for a Star Party!

Local astronomer Rebecca Spitz, of In Focus Astronomy, has offered up her expertise and her telescope for a guided tour of the universe!

Using her state-of-the-art observational telescope on a dark sky night, you can experience the far corners of space in an new and intimate way. Let your curiosity flourish!

Rebecca shares: “At In Focus Astronomy our goal is to build a mental bridge connecting the scientific discoveries of astrophysics with the natural beauty observed through our telescopes. Our methods of forming this connection make our stargazing experiences unique events that will have you begging the question: how am I related to even the most distant objects in our Universe?” 

Observation is from 9:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m., but we recommend arriving around 8:30 to set up your chairs or picnic blankets.
