Visit the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCR) Mt. Greylock State Reservation this Saturday, August 6 and hike to the summit of Massachusetts’ highest peak to enjoy an evening of night sky observing from 9 to 11 p.m. Mt. Greylock will provide you with the ability to see constellations, open star clusters and faraway galaxies! DCR rangers will even teach visitors how to star hop to popular objects.
The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will have telescopes at the summit ranging from the size of your arm to some that stand 9 feet tall. If you have your own telescope and binoculars and would like some help learning how to use them, please bring them along!
The program is free, and appropriate for all ages. For more Massachusetts Outdoor Events, visit the Great Outdoors interactive Google Calendar.
