June 29, 2022 @ 9:30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every day that begins at 9:30 pm, repeating until June 30, 2022
Wisconsin’s only designated dark sky park for a night of star gazing. There will be a telescope and other equipment set up with some of Door County’s best amateur astronomers on hand to point out some highlights of the night sky. All are welcome to bring their own telescopes, binoculars, chairs and blankets. Flashlights or headlamps with red lens cover is recommended. It is always a good idea to come during daytime hours to familiarize yourself with the area first. As conditions are unpredictable, the date for this program will be decided as weather conditions are assessed. Check with the park office, or the Facebook page (Newport Wilderness Society) for updates. This program will be cancelled if viewing conditions are poor. Park at Lot 3 and follow the marked path.
