Event: 'Two ‘stargazing’ Nights Planned By College' Print
  General
Events of interest to Catholics in the Diocese of Madison.
Date: Saturday, September 14, 2019 - 7:45 pm

Edgewood College has planned two "observing nights" for stargazers of all ages, where a new, Obsession Dobsonian Telescope, will be deployed at The Painted Forest in Valton, located, in rural Sauk County, where the natural darkness is perfect for observing stars and other celestial bodies. On Saturdays, Sept. 14 and Oct. 5, beginning at 7:45 p.m., the departments of chemistry, geoscience, physics, and arts, welcome interested community members to join students, faculty, and staff to explore the heavens with the new Obsession. Events will extend well into the evening. Visitors should plan on using a roadmap to reach Valton, as the mobile phone coverage in the rural area can be a challenge.
