Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument Star Party — 21 July 2017 — 8:30 – 10:30 pm
As of 6:30 PM, 21 July, this event is still on. The park is betting that the clouds will blow over and we’ll have amazing views of the night sky. Worst case is that they still have a great presentation inside the visitor center. See you there! – Dave
Park Rangers team up with the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society, to share the wonders of the night sky. We start with a Ranger presentation, then step outside for stargazing with telescopes. Viewing is weather-dependent.
