Oliver Lee
Saturn: Time & Agriculture
Join Oliver Lee Memorial State Park and the Amateur Astronomers Group for a star party featuring a tour of Saturn and its beautiful rings. Though many times the size of Earth, Saturn would float in a large bathtub like a beach ball due to its low density. View the home galaxy, the Milky Way, from our dark sky spot and view deep sky objects through telescopes. A three day-old waxing crescent Moon graces the western sky. Don't forget about our beautiful Oliver Lee sunsets!
