Come explore one of Big South Fork's most valuable resources, the night sky! We will be presenting a dark sky and solar viewing program on Saturday at 3:30 pm and 9:30 pm. Paul Lewis of University of Tennessee, along with amateur astronomy enthusiasts from across the region, will be here to find and describe the most fascinating stellar objects to look for in the night sky. Telescopes will be set up for sky observations.

Bring a blanket or chair for comfortable seating. In the event of inclement weather, an alternative dark skies program will be presented in the Interpretation and Education building located next to the Bandy Creek Visitor Center, and the solar viewing program will be cancelled.
