The night sky comes alive during StarWatch sessions

StarWatch – Bays Mountain Park’s night sky observing sessions – have returned for the fall season.

StarWatch is an hour-long program that allows the public to enjoy the splendor of the night sky at Bays Mountain’s observatories. If the weather is good, attendees can typically see star clusters, nebulous gas clouds, colorful multiple-star systems, distant galaxies and the Moon and planets.

The sessions are held in the observatories at dusk each Saturday night in October and November. If there is inclement weather, a free alternate live tour of the night sky will be held in the planetarium theater.

  • Dress for temperatures at least 20 degrees cooler than expected.
  • Do not use white light flashlights at the observing grounds
  • This is a free event and does not require registration.

StarWatch is hosted by the Bays Mountain Astronomy Club & Bays Mountain Planetarium.
