The Winter Solstice Starry Sky – A Family-Friendly Program:

December 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join The Last Green Valley on the Solstice as we welcome in the winter months with a celebration of our Starry Sky. Lead Night Sky Rangers Kim and Geoff will point out the constellations and share constellation stories of the First Americans. We will also have a chance to view deep sky objects, such as the Dumbbell Nebula, Andromeda Galaxy, and Owl Cluster, with telescopes. Also visible will be Venus, Uranus and Neptune, and the Ursids Meteor Shower will give us some shooting stars. The view should be great as the moon will not rise until late in the morning hours and the crisp winter night means little atmospheric disturbance.  Dress warmly – hat, mittens, multiple layers, warm socks and shoes/boots.  This is a family friendly event and a great way to celebrate the season together.

West Thompson Dam, Overlook Shelter, 162 W. Thompson Rd, North Grosvenor Dale, CT.
