Join us at Maryhill Museum of Art for this fantastic family-friendly event – 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, Jupiter, Venus and Mars! A special group of children’s telescopes gives little ones the same incredible views.
Learn about the stars during a twilight conversation with Troy Carpenter from the Goldendale Observatory and storyteller Will Hornyak sharing 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 4 p.m.). Explore the museum, which will be open late until 7 p.m.
Visitors who wish to stargaze without camping, are welcome. Stargazing only is FREE on the grounds of the museum.
