Thursday, September 29                        Night Sky Program                        7:00-9:00pm

With the Colorado Plateau being home to the darkest night skies within the United States, viewing the Milky Way, stars, planets and deep space objects is quite the experience. Join Rangers from Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park to explore the link between humans and the night sky. Participants should dress in layers, bring a camp chair, red light if available and binoculars if they have them. Please plan to arrive by 6:45 pm and meet at the visitor center. Program will be followed by a constellation tour and telescope viewing. For more information, please call (435) 259-2614.
