Come join us for a chance to watch the stars!
We want you to come out and join us and take a look through one of the on site telescopes or just lounge around with your friends and family and observe the stars and the skies! We’ll observe whatever the sky wants to show us, but we’ll look specifically for galaxies and nebulae.
We have an addition to this event, the eVscope eQuinox. This amazing telescope will allow you to view and save images directly to your phone through use of wifi and the Unistellar app. Download the Unistellar app prior to arrival to save some time.
Remember, it will probably be cold, so bundle up and bring some hot hands or other heating devices. No fires on site, we attempt to keep out stray light as much as possible.
Please know that due to federal mandates, those who attend the event should wear a mask within 6′ of others not from their party and maintain distancing between parties not from the same group.
Directions – In the event your mapping program steers you wrong, you follow Carters Dam Rd up the mountain from 136. Then veer left at the end past the gatehouse and cross the dam.
Location-Northbank Park – Carter’s Lake Astronomy Field – Ellijay Ga
When-Friday, January 21, 2022- 6:30pm-9:30pm
*** As always, weather is unpredictable. The event will be cancelled or rescheduled if there is rain or cloudy skies.
