Several stargazing events are taking place at the Lennox & Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area, located at 7980 County Road 41 in Erinsville.
In addition to the laser-guided tours of the night sky that have been taking place the past several years, the site has introduced a new monthly “Astrophotographers Assemble” night sky photography sessions for 2018.
The next event takes place on Saturday, June 16 beginning at about 10 p.m. and runs until dawn (weather permitting). This new feature is an informal evening where night sky photographers – from novice to expert and everyone in between – are encouraged to share ideas while photographing the stars overhead. Events occur on Saturday evenings on or near a new moon through September.
