Friday Night Skywatching
The Fairfax County Park Authority and the Analemma Society are resuming free Friday night public celestial observing sessions at Turner Farm Park’s Roll-Top Observatory.
Beginning June 18, 2021, Analemma Society volunteers will guide your observing and explain some of the fascinating celestial objects that you can see -- stars with brilliant color, star clusters, gaseous hydrogen nebulae, and island universes of other galaxies. Bring your telescope or binoculars, or look at the heavens through one of the site’s mounted telescopes. Advance registration is not required.
Observations take place every Friday from 8:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m., weather permitting. The site will follow COVID-19 policies that are consistent with Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's directives and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
