Star Party Saturday

Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historic Park are hosting a Star Party on Saturday, April 27th beginning at 7:30 pm. Guests are invited to enjoy an evening gazing at the stars with the National Park Service and Shenandoah Astronomical Society. Telescopes will be available for use, or you are welcome to bring your own. Astronomical Society members on hand will assist with using their telescopes. To begin the viewing session, a park ranger will present a short interpretive talk about the significance of preserving the night sky. To join the star party, attendees will meet at Thoburn’s Redoubt on Bowman’s Mill Road. The location is in a remote area and there are no bathroom facilities on site. The property does not have a street address. To access the location from Route 11, turn onto Water Plant Road, then right onto Long Meadow Road and another right onto Bowman’s Mill Road before making the final right turn on to the property. The event is weather permitting so it is advised to confirm the program’s start time with the visitor’s center before arrival at 540-869-3051.
