Outdoor Movie Night: "The Emissary"

Time: 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Join us for a star-filled night! We'll start by watching "The Emissary", a local sci-fi thriller romantic comedy filmed throughout Door County and Newport State Park. If skies allow, we will head out after the movie to view the night sky in Wisconsin's only dark sky park. Meet Tim and Holly Erskine, the folks who made the movie! There are some picnic tables to sit at, but feel free to bring lawn chairs. This will be held at the shelter building, a short walk down the blacktop path from Lot 3. Flashlights or headlamps with a red light or filter are recommended to help find your way.

Universe in the Park

Time: 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Activities: Astronomy, Educational Programs, Night event, Outdoor activity
Location: Newport SP

Universe in the Park is a popular outreach program of the UW-Madison Astronomy Department and is predicated on a very simple idea: the best environment in which to introduce the general public to astronomy is outside under dark skies. The program begins with a 20-30 minute talk and slide presentation covering a broad view of astronomy and recent astronomical news. Following the presentation, a telescope is set up to view whatever astronomical objects are available. Question and answer period follows around the telescope.

Newport State Park is one of the best places to view the night sky as it is Wisconsin's only designated international dark sky park. Be sure to bring a lawn chair or blanket, flash lights or headlamps with a red lens (protects night vision). Meet at Lot 3, follow path to shelter building.
