Solar viewing, star party at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park

Robert Ferguson Observatory in Sugarloaf Ridge State Park will host a day of solar viewing followed by a star party on Saturday, Nov. 2.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., see the earth’s most important star, the sun, through the safety of a specialized telescope.

At 7 p.m., the observatory re-opens for a nighttime star party during which the three main telescopes plus many additional telescopes are open for viewing.

Ongoing presentations on astronomical topics are given in the classrooms, and friendly and knowledgeable docents are available to answer questions. Guests should arrive before 10 p.m.

There is no charge to attend the solar viewing outside of the $8 parking fee (per car).
