Star Party at Red Rock State Park

Red Rock State Park

Saturday, June 2, 2018   7:30 p.m.

Under the dark skies of Red Rock State Park, the summer Milky Way will be starting to make its way across the night sky. The planet Jupiter will be high in the sky as it goes through the constellation of Libra, the Scales. Venus may be glimpsed low on the western horizon as it hovers in the constellation of Gemini, the Twins. The easily recognizable constellations of Ursa Major, the Big Dipper and Ursa Minor, the Little Dipper will be riding high in the northern sky. The first globular clusters of the summer will also be making their first appearances. For those who like galaxies, the galaxy rich constellations of Leo and Virgo will be in prime viewing position for the telescopes set up for viewing these night sky wonders. This event is sponsored by Keep Sedona Beautiful.

Cookies, “moon juice”, and other complimentary beverages will be provided.  Attendance is limited and reservations are required.  The program will wrap up by 10:00 pm.

A $5.00 program fee per person is required in addition to the park’s regular admission fees; $7.00 per adult (14 and up), $4.00 per youth (7–13), and free for children (0–6).  To make reservations, please call (928) 282-6907 beginning May 3rd.
