Event description

Description

The John Marsh Historic Trust will hold its first Astronomy Night in the Marsh Creek State Historic Park on Monday, July 29 from 8:00 to 10:30 p.m. Telescopes and star charts will be provided by our host, Jeff Adkins, director of the Antioch Earth, Space and Astronomy Center for Education (ESPACE) at Deer Valley High School. Mr. Adkins will also be an instructor at the soon-to-open Los Medanos Community College in Brentwood.

In addition to an expected meteor shower that night, Jupiter and Saturn will be up and clearly visible. Sagittarius, Scorpius, the Summer Triangle and many other bright constellations will be visible as well.

Cost is $10 per person or $25 for a family of three or more. Proceeds will go to support the Trust, which is working to build an Interpretive Center in the park, restore the 163-year-old Stone House, and open the park to the public.

Please wear closed-toe shoes and long pants, as the site is a working cattle ranch with areas of tall grass. Also, there are no bathroom facilities at the site, so take care of business before you arrive. Use of flashlights will be discouraged to preserve star gazers' night vision.
