Stargazing at Shawnee Prairie


GREENVILLE — Under the light of a slender waxing crescent moon on Saturday at 8 p.m., join Darke County Parks as they welcome back the Stillwater Stargazers to Shawnee Prairie Preserve.

Jupiter will be high for optimal viewing, and the Big Dipper will also be well positioned to observe.

Participants will meet in the parking lot at the Nature Center for this free program. Enter the parking lot slowly with parking lights only. If the sky is cloudy, call the Nature Center by 4 p.m. to confirm the program is still occurring.

“Bring binoculars if you have them, and there will be a telescope for deep sky viewing,” said organizers. For any questions about this or any other park district programs, call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
