This year Star Parties at Cloudland Canyon State Park, conducted by the Barnard Astronomical Society and sponsored by the Staff and Friends of Cloudland Canyon State Park will be held on the first Saturday of the month beginning in April thru September. The next party will be held on Saturday, May 4. The event will begin at the starting point of the Disc Golf Course from 8-10 p.m.
"As always, we will also be observing whatever planets are visible and DSO's (Deep Sky Objects) like star clusters, nebulae and other galaxies like our own Milky Way. Astronomy programs are free to all."
Usual parking fee at the park applies. If the weather is “iffy” call 941-544-3420 after 6 p.m. that day for update.
