Stargazing at Metzgar’s Farm
Wednesday, July 26th (Rain date: July 27th
Arrive no later than 8:15 p.m.
In partnership with the Buck Hill Conservation Foundation, Foxhowe offers a night of stargazing for adults and children. Astronomer Rich Grebb will aim his telescope and his laser pointer at the galaxies beyond for this family-friendly event. From atop Metzgar’s Farm, view Saturn and its rings; the Hercules Star Cluster; the constellations Scorpius and Sagittarius; the Summer Triangle and star patterns; and bright stars Vega, Deneb, Altair, Arcturus, and North Star Polaris. Grebb taught astronomy for 33 years in the Pennsylvania public schools and directed the E.F. Groner Planetarium in Stroudsburg. Dress in layers and wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and binoculars, if you have them. A small flashlight will help with the walk to your car after the program.
