Each month, we meet at Blue Ridge Parkway (Mile Marker 139) to learn more about the universe. These stargazing gatherings will allow you to meet like-minded outdoor and space enthusiasts as you peer through large telescopes and catch a glimpse of distant stars, planets and galaxies. All programs are FREE, but advance registration is required by calling 540-853-2236 or signing up online before the registration deadline. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Programs are led by Frank Baratta, an experienced amateur astronomer and member of the Roanoke Valley Astronomical Society.
