Stargazing at Usery Park

"Come watch the sky with us under the expert guidance of Tony and Carole La Conte! Come look through telescopes and enjoy a slide presentation under the stars. Learn the names of stars, see the constellations, and listen to stories of the night sky. When visible, view the craters of the moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and the rings of Saturn. We will have information about the Challenger Learning Center of Arizona. This is truly a fun night out! Come alone or bring your entire family. No pets, please. We encourage you to bring your own binoculars or the family telescope but it is not necessary. Bring lawn chairs or blankets for your comfort. The program lasts about 2 hours and meets at Group Picnic D."

Cost is $6 each vehicle. Head to this site for a map and directions. Once you are at Usery Park someone at the entrance can direct you to the stargazing.
