Dark Sky Party

Park: Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve SNR

Come out to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve on Saturday, June 21 to view the stars and planets of the summer night sky through Antelope Valley Astronomy Club telescopes!  Club members will be set up on site from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. for viewing and answering questions about the unique celestial objects such as nebula, galaxies, clusters, Jupiter and Venus visible in the dark sky.


The Jane S. Pinheiro Interpretive Center will be open from 7 - 8 p.m.; stop in while the sky darkens to peruse the nature exhibits, and volunteers will be available to direct those interested in a twilight hike on the park trails.


Please arrive before dark (by 8:00 p.m.) and turn off main headlights when entering the parking lot. More information can be found at www.Facebook.com/PoppyReserve, and at www.AVAstronomyClub.org
