Harpers Ferry Night Sky Festival

Monday, August 13, 2018

Join us at the Mather Training Center, Harpers Ferry at 7pm for a thought-provoking program by Paul Bogard, author of the acclaimed book "The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light." Following the program join the National Park Service and TriState Astronomers at the Murphy-Chambers Farm, Harpers Ferry for an all-ages evening of star gazing! Enjoy an evening of viewing the night sky through telescopes or with the naked eye. Take a laser- guided sky tour of visible celestial objects. If you are lucky, you may witness the Perseid meteor shower! Admission to the star party is free but pre-registration is required and limited to 40 people.
