Astronomy and the Summer Sky
Join us for a night devoted to the stars and constellations of the summer sky. First, we will learn some basic astronomy inside and get oriented to the night sky, then head outside to enjoy the beauty and wonder of the starry sky. Dr. Ralph J. Yulo Jr., Professor of Science Education emeritus at ECSU; is a local astronomy expert and will be leading this night of star-gazing at Goodwin State Forest.
This free event is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks, and Friends of Goodwin Forest.
