Stargazing Campfire

Event date and time
October 5, 2018 - 7:00 PM to October 5, 2018 - 9:30 PM

Nature Up North is excited to invite you to a night of stargazing and astronomy at our fall Campfire with St. Lawrence University Physics Professor Aileen O'Donoghue. On this date the moon will be a waning crescent, just four days away from the new moon and a great time to see stars and planets. We’ll start around the campfire at 7 pm with a short discussion, followed by the opportunity to join Aileen in small groups at a telescope set up a short distance away. This event is free and open to the public, with water and s’mores provided. Bring your friends and family!

The Stargazing Campfire will be held at the Wachtmeister Field Station at the south end of the SLU campus in Canton. To get there, proceed south down Park St. past the campus athletic fields. The drive will be on the left coming from the SLU campus and right if coming from Route 27.
