Stargazing at Fisher Farm October 14

Posted on 26. Sep, 2011 by in Recent News, WOW Events

Please join the DLC, the Physics Department from Davidson College and the Charlotte Astronomy Club at Fisher Farm Park for another night of Stargazing at Fisher Farm Park in Davidson on October 14.

All telescopes will be set up and ready to go by 8:00 pm.  After that, no changes will be made. Therefore, you are welcome to come any time between 8 pm and 9:30 pm.  You may bring your own telescope.  Bring a flashlight. 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. Dogs:  please keep your dogs leashed and under good control.  This event is being sponsored by the Davidson Lands Conservancy.  This is a free event, but DLC needs your membership support.   You can become a member for as little as $35 a year.

Attached are two files you may download to enhance your experience:  a description of planets and stars you may see, and a sheet on which to note your observations.

Fisher Farm Park is located at 21215 Shearer Road on the east side of Davidson.  Take East Rocky River Road to Shearer, then head north on Shearer about 1 mile and Fisher Farm Park will be on the left.
