Time: 6:00 PM Utah Time - 7:00 PM Utah Time

Planning on visiting a dark sky park in Utah? Cool! Lets talk about some of the differences in the parks, where to find the best spot to view the stars, and what kind of equipment would work best for observing the night sky at each location. Which parks are better throughout the year? What are some things you should be aware of when visiting? What about traveling through several parks for a Utah dark sky tour? Join Paul Ricketts, from the University of Utah's South Physics Observatory for this fascinating and informative presentation.
