Stonelick Lake Stargazers Facebook PageFOTO 2014- Free Stargazes

DSSMapOhio's Stonelick Lake State Park hosts The Friends of the Observatory's Dark Sky Viewing Site. The park is situated far enough from light polluted suburbs to allow dark skies, yet close enough to the Cincinnati Metro area to attract hundreds of interested star gazers throughout the year. On Saturday's, near the New Moon, amateur astronomers set up a variety of telescopes inviting the public to view the wonders of the night sky. The events are free and open to the public.

This is a great opportunity to view planets, galaxies, nebulae, star clusters and stars. It is also a good opportunity to see many different types of telescopes in action, ask questions and become involved in the fascinating world of astronomy. Amateur astronomers are more than willing to have you look through their telescopes as well as help you with your personal telescope.

Free stargazes at Stonelick Lake State Park are held only if the skies are clear.

Updates are posted on the Stonelick Lake Stargazers Facebook page.

Throughout the year we also hold many special stargazes and programs. For more information visit our Facebook page, email Aaron Eiben at stonelickstargazers@gmail.com or call the Observatory at 513-321-5186.
