Summer Star Parties at Capon Springs!

7:30 pm - 12:30 pm

Nothing beats the chill of winter like planning a Capon summer vacation! Besides the usual daily outdoor adventures and evening events, starting July 10th we will feature several days and nights of "out of this world" programs... Here is your chance to explore our own galaxy, which seems not that far away when you use powerful telescopes! You might not find distant planets such as Takodana, Jakku or even Tatooine, but you will see constellations, clusters, nebulae and curiosities from our own solar system (including Saturn as it's brightest)! Evenings of star gazing will be combined with daily orientations about the night sky. Hosted by Shenandoah Astronomy Society president Dottie Edwards, these events are family-friendly for all ages. Tuesday evening will feature a NASA solar system ambassador talking about future explorations of the moon. Stay for as many nights as you would like! While the standard July and August vacation is still a week, during this special time period there are no minimum number of nights required.
