Night Sky Program “A Love Story…Written in the Stars”

Milky_way_1Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument to Host Night Sky Program, “A Love Story…Written in the Stars” February 13.

On Saturday, February 13 join us for a Valentine’s celebration beneath the starry skies of Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument!  This program will feature an indoor ranger presentation followed by outdoor laser-guided constellation tour and telescope observations.  Members of the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society will be on hand to share their love of the night sky and provide telescope viewing of the moon, star clusters, nebulae, and other celestial wonders.

The program will be held at the Florissant Fossil Beds Visitor Center from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM.

Please note that viewing is weather-dependent, and takes place only if clear.  Presentations take place no matter the weather.  Dress warmly in layers.  Bring binoculars or a flashlight if you wish (red-filtered lights only please).
