Starry Night at the Museum

Join us at Maryhill for a magical overnight campout and stargazing experience in one of the most majestic settings imaginable. Volunteers from Rose City Astronomers will provide telescopes to give visitors awe-inspiring views of the summer night sky. Catch glimpses of the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy, Sagittarius, and even some meteors if we are lucky! Troy Carpenter from the Goldendale Observatory will be our guest lecturer and Will Hornyak will share a selection of star stories. Arrive early in the afternoon for Sun Viewing with special filters, hosted by the Friends of Goldendale Observatory (starts at 3 p.m.); the museum will be open until 7 p.m. and the cafe will be open until 6:30 p.m.
