Stargazing program scheduled this weekend

The Department of Environmental Protection’s Henderson Beach State Park will host a stargazing program this weekend.

Northwest Florida Astronomy Association volunteers will set up several telescopes for public viewing of star clusters, planets and galaxies, and answer questions about the night sky.

Before sunset, the telescopes will be equipped for safe viewing of the sun. Residents of all ages are invited to enjoy an evening of stargazing.

The park admission fee includes the program.

The park closes at sunset; all those attending the stargazing should arrive before sunset. 

Call 837-7550 for sunset time.
