GEAUGA PARK DISTRICT’S DARK SKY PARK

The Geauga Park District opens its one-of-a-kind Observatory Park in August.  Only one of three designated “Dark Sky Parks” in the country, the visionary project will include an observatory, astronomical displays and trails that will allow people to explore nature from the ground to the galaxies.

Get a sneak preview of the displays:

Monday through Friday, 2:30 PM         Wednesday, 8 P      Saturday, 10:30 AM*,12:30 and  2 and 4 PM     Sunday, 12:30 and 2 and 4 PM

*On July 2 and August 6, “Star Babies” will be offered at this time instead.  Star Babies gives children 4 and younger a gentle, 15-minute introduction to the planetarium and the wonders of the night sky.

    This is great stuff. I once vacationed in Colorado and camped out under the stars. That is STARS in all caps! It is amazing what the night looks like when you can see all of it.

  2. You’ve made me twice as eager as I had been to visit the Dark Sky Park.
