Come on down to Picacho Peak State Park and take a grand look at the beautiful stars above. In this 45-minute program, a park ranger will help you learn about some of the constellations in our night skies, their stories, and how they may have been used long ago. We will even have a telescope set up to look at the various planets and space phenomena throughout our solar system. Bring a blanket and your curiosity! And please, thank the stars above. (Meet at the Jackrabbit East Group Area)
