Stargazing Under The Spring Sky

Stargazing Under The Spring Sky

Lions, Snakes and bears…oh my!

 

(Peoria) – Have you caught spring fever yet or are you just looking for something out-of-the-ordinary to do with the family over spring break? Either way, the staff at the Desert Outdoor Center at Lake Pleasant has you covered!

 

Join local astronomy experts, Tony and Carole LaConte, from Stargazing for Everyone, on Saturday, March 16 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. as they bring the universe to you.  Learn about the constellations, planets, star clusters and nebulas as you peer through telescopes and binoculars and enjoy stories about the spring sky.

 

The two-hour program is a great way to learn about the galaxy while taking advantage of the beautiful weather.  Attendees are encouraged to bring binoculars, digital cameras, lawn chairs and blankets for comfort. Food and beverages are available for purchase.

 

Park entrance opens at 6:30 p.m. The Desert Outdoor Center at Lake Pleasant is located at 41402 N. 87th Avenue in Peoria (just east of Lake Pleasant Regional Park). For additional information, visit www.maricopa.gov/parks/doc  or phone (602) 372-7470 ext. 208.
