Star Gaze

Introduction to Stargazing Winter Constellations, Kuehn Conservation Area, Thursday, January 26, 2017, 6:30 - 8:00 pm.

Winter can either be spent sequestered inside huddled around the hearth, or wandering about in the wilds seeking to know its wonders. Start 2017 off right wandering with DCCB. The wilds of Dallas County’s night skies are filled with stories written in the stars. Each constellation holds a story and a connection for you to our place. Join us for this stargazing party and we will teach you how to build and read a star chart, measure distances in the sky and how to find and identify the major constellations in the January winter sky. The real party will begin next as we venture outside to read a few star stories and come to better know our wild place.  Registration is required for this program.
