May 23, 2020, 8:30 p.m.

Add to Outlook calendar

Far from the City lights, Raven Run is the perfect location to view all the wonders found in the night sky. The Bluegrass Amateur Astronomy club will be on-site with several Dobson and Refractor telescopes for visitors to view binary stars, nebulae and planets. Visitors are welcome to bring their own telescopes. This event usually lasts 1 – 2 hours. Bring a flashlight or headlamp. This program is weather dependent so call the nature sanctuary before heading out to the program. 

To attend: Arrive at the park 20 minutes before the scheduled program begins. The gate will be open for 25 minutes to allow participants entry to the park. There will be no admittance to the program after that, as we have to close the front gate for safety purposes.
