05:30 PM - 08:00 PM
Oliver Lee
Star Factory
Oliver Lee Memorial State Park and the Amateur Astronomers Group host a star party highlighting the Orion nebula. Hear the myths of the great hunter and how ancient cultures emulated the stellar patterns into architecture. The Orion nebula is the brightest star-forming region in the northern winter sky and it gives us insight to how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust. A 4-day old crescent Moon will grace the western sky. Enjoy hot coffee and cocoa courtsey of the AAG. Dress warmly come early and witness a beautiful Dog Canyon sunset.
