3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Why do we have seasons? Why do we say days are ‘getting shorter’ or ‘longer’? How do animals know when to migrate, and flowers know when to grow? In this investigation, we will use simulations and construct models to understand how the source of the seasons is literally ‘out of this world.’
Wilkerson Star Party
April 21st, 2023
8 to 10:30 p.m.
A once-a-year free all-ages Astronomy event and Wilkerson tradition since 2013. Join us after sunset to observe the Moon, planets and more with our telescopes, or bring your own telescope to join the fun. There will also be hands-on space-science activities for families at our Picnic Shelter and Ec Center. Please park in the overflow parking lot and follow the “Solar System Walk” to the telescope field near the park office. Bring a flashlight (with a red light if possible) to aid you in walking after dark. Adults must accompany their children.
