Public Stargazing at Strawberry Hill, Take 2

We’re going for it again in July 23 at 9:30 PM! Description and links are below. Note that this is a Strawberry Hill, not Gettysburg College, program, and it is not free. 

Here is a photo from the site (the Summer Triangle rising over the trees around 10 PM). Very good skies for Adams County.

Stargazing at Strawberry Hill
July 23, 9:30pm
Explore the science and the stories of the July night sky with Strawberry Hill Naturalist and local planetarium director Ian Clarke. Pack a flashlight for the hike to our viewing location. But once we get there it will be lights out, so our eyes can adapt to the the relative darkness of a moonless night on the Preserve. Then Ian will guide you on a tour of the stars and planets you see. This month, that will include a special star group known as the “Summer Triangle.”

Dress in layers. You may find it warm as you hike, but chilly when you’re standing still at the stargazing site. The talk will be aimed at people using only their unaided eyes, but feel free to bring binoculars if you wish. Due to the hike, however, you should leave telescopes at home.

Please preregister at (717) 642-5840. $5 members / $8 non-members
