McCloud Nature Park eyes skies

Saturday, July 9, 2011

McCloud Nature Park's free monthly meeting of the Indiana Astronomical Society's New Astronomer's Group is Saturday, July 9.

The discussion will begin in the Nature Center at 8 p.m. This month's topic is "Vega and Arcturus: Luminaries of the Summer Sky."

After a brief question-and-answer session, participants will have an opportunity to view some of the wonders of the night sky, weather permitting, through their own telescope or one set up by IAS members.

The Nature Center is open from Wednesday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Admission is always free, and the park is open from dawn to dusk daily.

For more information on McCloud Nature Park and park programs, persons may call McCloud at 676-5437, or visit www.hendrickscountyparks.org.
