Want to learn more about the night sky? Join park rangers for night sky programs and telescope viewing held every Saturday at Point Supreme. Beginning shortly before sunset, rangers lead a presentation on a night-sky related topic. As the skies darken, you’ll have a chance to get an up-close look at celestial wonders (such as the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, star clusters and galaxies) through park telescopes. You can also be guided on laser-powered tours of the constellations and explore celestial mythology.

Dress warmly and bring a red flashlight if you have one! Visitors are also welcome to bring their own telescopes. Telescope viewing may be cancelled due to cloud cover or storms. Check at the Information Center for event updates & star gazing supplies!
