‘Stargazing at Fossil Creek’ is bring presented by the Northern Colorado Astronomical Society (NCAS) and will enable guests to view the sky through telescopes provided courtesy of the NCAS.

This event is geared towards everybody in the family, and is a great way to spend some fun time, while learning more about our galaxy. Poster printing, flyer printing, and brochure printing may be used to promote and educate during this event.

People will have the opportunity to stare into the night sky while learning more about our neighboring planets like Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, and Venus. The moon and stars will be interesting topics of discussion, but there will also be information on the some galaxies further afield.

Guests are reminded to dress in warm clothing and to bring something to sit on while they wait for their viewing turn. Registration is not required for this event and the group meets in the parking lot before moving to the viewing area.

The NCAS was created to foster and encourage interest in science, especially astronomy. It has a regular meeting on the first Thursday of every month, to which anybody interested is welcome to join it.
