Star party to be held at Antietam Battlefield

April 14, 2010

Explore the night sky with the TriState Astronomers Friday and Saturday at the annual free public star party at Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg.

Telescopes will be set up both nights near the Visitors Center parking lot for all to view Saturn, the Moon and other wonders of the night sky.

Bring your own telescope or binoculars if you wish. This is an ongoing event throughout the evening for the whole family.

There will also be laser guided sky tours pointing out various stars and constellations of the spring night sky.

The event will be held from 6 to 11:30 p.m. It will be canceled if cloudy.
