Stargazing at New Quarter Park on May 14

NASA/Langley Exchange Stargazers Club members will set up their telescopes at New Quarter Park for celestial viewing on Saturday night, May 14. The public is invited to arrive as early at 8:30 pm to talk to the astronomers as they set up their scopes and then stay to look at the night sky through club members' equipment from 9 to 11 pm.

"Stargazing with the NASA Skywatchers at the New Quarter Park is a chance for people to come observe the night sky through telescopes and binoculars and see things they otherwise might not get to see, and learn some astronomy as well." Said Mark Croom, Skywatchers President.

New Quarter Park is located at 1000 Lakeshead Road, just off of the Colonial Parkway between Cheatham Annex and the Queen's Lake neighborhood. For more information, visit or call 757-890-5840. In case of inclement weather, a notice of cancelation will be recorded at this number.
