The public is invited to a free star gazing event on Saturday, April 30 from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. in the parking area of Rocky Face Mountain Recreational Area. Members of the Piedmont Amateur Astronomers Club will bring their high-powered telescopes for the public to use.
This particular program will be a deep-sky observation. The moon will not be visible, which gives the opportunity to see further into space. Telescopes will be set up in the parking area for the public to use or you are welcome to bring your own. Please approach the parking area with parking lights only. This event is weather dependent. Park Rangers will be on duty, and all trails will be closed.
