Come Star Gaze at Fisher Farm Park April 12th!

Posted on 15. Mar, 2013 by in World of Wonder, WOW Events, WOW Past Events

People of all ages are invited to a wondrous night of stargazing at Fisher Farm Park on April 12th.  This event is sponsored by WOW, Woodland Discovery and Davidson Lands Conservancy. The Physics Department from Davidson College and the Charlotte Astronomy Club are providing equipment and expertise for this popular event.  All telescopes will be set up and ready to go by 8pm.  After that, no changes will be made. Therefore, you are welcome to come any time between 8pm and 10pm. This is a fun and very well attended event; come a bit early if you can!

You’re welcome to bring your own telescope.  Bring a flashlight; be sure to have red cellophane put on your flashlight when you arrive at Fisher Farm.  This enables us to see the sky better. Keep car lights dimmed and your speed very slow as you drive into Fisher Farm to keep dust and glare from interfering with the night sky. Please keep your dogs leashed and under good control.  No registration is required.

This is a free event, but WOW and DLC need your membership support.   You can become a member for as little as $35 a year.  Please join by clicking here.
