Seeing some unexplained lights on earth this time of year? Well, we're looking out of this world to find some! With our friends from Naperville Astronomical Association, we'll take the mystery out of the questions: What is a star?, Who is Orion?, and Where is my favorite Constellation? This program takes advantage of Prairie Bluff Preserve's open terrain and maximum viewing angles. Learn how to use a star chart to find fascinating objects visible with the naked eye, binoculars or small telescopes. Some telescopes and binoculars will be on hand to view these objects. Participants can also bring a small telescope or binoculars of their own. This program is weather-dependent and will be canceled if conditions are not suitable for viewing. Getting to the viewing area requires a short walk on uneven terrain. For all ages; ages 10 or younger must be accompanied by an adult. Registration required.
