Stargazing at the Dark Sky Park

79 days old

Time: 9:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Activity: Astronomy
Location: Newport SP

Join us at Wisconsin's only designated dark sky park for a night of star gazing. There will be a telescope and other equipment set up with some of Door County's best amateur astronomers on hand to point out some highlights of the night sky. All are welcome to bring their own telescopes, binoculars, chairs and blankets. Flashlights or headlamps with red lens cover is recommended. It is always a good idea to come during day time hours to familiarize yourself with the area first. Rain date: July 28. Park at Lot 3 and follow the marked path.
