View the constellations that mark the changing of another season. The Park will start the program with a laser guided tour of these patterns in the night sky conducted by park. Later take a look through the park’s telescopes to see the ringed planet Saturn. We’ll also view double stars, star clusters and distant galaxies.

Programs are conducted at Night Sky Viewing Area. Follow the red lit walkway from the public program parking section to the seating area.

If the sky is unfavorable for stargazing, an alternative program may be held at the pavilion/amphitheater located on the Astronomy Field. However this program may be cancelled in the event of severe weather.

The weather can be cool and damp, dress accordingly. For further information, please call the Lyman Run State Park office at (814) 435-5010.
