Explore the wilderness above as we look at two planets and the Moon. We will also see less commonly viewed objects that historical astronomers simply referred to as nebula.

Local amateur astronomers will make equipment available to view the night sky on the paths near the Smith House. See the moon and other celestial objects in one of the darkest locations in Centerville! A naturalist will be on hand to lead short night hikes. We’ll stay warm with a campfire on this early spring night.

FIRST-TIME REGISTRANTS: If you are a resident of Centerville/Washington Township, please enter Dayton as your city when creating an account. The system WILL NOT recognize you as a resident if you enter Centerville or Washington Township as your city.
