Special this season: night sky viewings & planetarium shows
Geauga Park District’s Observatory Park in Montville Township is open daily 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Labor Day through Memorial Day, and naturalist staff including “Astro-Nat” Chris Mentrek are eager to show you around your International Dark Sky Park during the following programs coming up this fall.
Before you plan to come out, however, in light of the coronavirus, please visit www.geaugaparkdistrict.org to check for any new or different registration requirements as our naturalists continue to adjust to fluctuating state guidelines. Thank you for understanding!
Among those adjustments, registration is required for nearly all programs in order to keep group sizes safe. Remaining spots are still available for the following astronomy programs this season:
– Join us for socially distant night sky viewing, with telescopes spaced out around the Park plaza, by registering for a one-hour time slot during one of two Saturdays, November 28 or December 12.
– “Astro-Nat” Chris looks forward to sharing what you can watch for in the night sky this season during The Sky Tonight Plantarium Shows on Sundays, October 25, November 29 and December 27. Please register for one of four time slots on any given afternoon.
Additionally, the Geauga Skywatchers Club meets virtually this season to discuss the moon, astrolabes and Mars. Registration is required for those meetings, too, at https://geaugalibrary.libcal.
For program times, please visit www.geaugaparkdistrict.org and filter by Astronomy, or visit the website to learn more about Observatory Park and its trails any time of day or night.
