Night Sky Program: Cacapon

August 6 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

A night of stargazing with local astronomer Kevin Boles is planned at Cacapon Resort State Park, August 6, 2022 at 8:30 p.m.

Join us as we learn about constellations with a tour of the sky, including mythology. If conditions allow, we will view deep space objects using telescopes and binoculars.

Summer skies bring into view the planet Jupiter and the Galilean moons, Saturn and its rings, the Hercules star cluster, double stars Albireo and Epsilon Lyrae, the Ring nebula, Milky Way, and maybe some meteors and galaxies. Come out and enjoy the exceptional dark skies West Virginia has to offer.

If weather does not allow viewing, we will learn how to use star maps and get a virtual tour of the night sky from inside the lodge.

The Night Sky (outside) program is located at the upper lake. Bring a camping chair for more comfort. This program is free to attend and open to the public.
