Star Gazing with Von Braun Astronomical Society
The Nature Conservancy of Alabama’s Roy B. Whitaker Preserve
Much of nature’s beauty can be enjoyed at night! You can join Land Trust of North Alabama and Von Braun Astronomical Society for an evening of stargazing at the Nature Conservancy in Alabama’s Roy B. Whitaker Nature Preserve. Far from city lights and perfectly timed for the new moon, we’ll appreciate a starry view of the dark skies above with guidance and information from VBAS Board Member Don Martin. Bag chairs recommended.
Location: Roy B. Whitaker Paint Rock Preserve – 2188 U.S. Hwy 72, Jackson County, AL 35764
