Stargazing in Madison Parks

 

Madison Parks has teamed up with UW Space Place to offer a quarterly stargazing program in our parks. UW Space Place will lead a session that begins just after sunset with a 20-30 minute talk and slide show about astronomy. At the conclusion of the talk (if the sky is clear) they will set up one of the moderate aperture (8"-10") telescopes and provide park visitors the opportunity to view whatever astronomical objects are available. All ages welcome.  Join us each season and learn about the night sky.
