Star Party – Leo & Beehive Cluster

April 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Glowing Eye

Quarter Moon, Constellation Leo, Beehive Cluster

Our Basic Star Party is perfect for introducing the night sky to youth and adults.  Gardner Camp has the best viewing sky in the entire region. We kick off the party inside our amazing StarLab planetarium where groups can fly to Mars and the Moon as well as view videos and animations of night sky marvels! After our planetarium experience, we lay under the stars and listen to the telling of constellation stories!  This session focuses on the constellation Leo (Lion) and the beautiful Beehive star cluster in the Cancer (Crab) constellation.  During this event, participants will also learn about Gardner Camp’s high-powered telescopes. Youth will go home with a newfound fascination with the night sky. Geared toward youth ages 10-17. Registration required.  Contact us at info@gardnercamp.org for registration information.
