CLEAR LAKE STATE PARK – The Clear Lake State Park Interpretive Association (CLSPIA), in collaboration with Taylor Observatory, presents " FALL-ing Stars in Lake County Skies," at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 26, in the visitor center auditorium.

 

 

The presenter is Lake County resident John Zimmerman, an assistant at Taylor Observatory and an amateur astronomer.

 

This one-hour presentation shows what is visible in the fall night skies over Lake County without the aid of binoculars or a telescope.


With some of the nation's darkest and clearest skies, Lake County is ideal for star gazing.


During this presentation, you will learn to identify patterns of stars known as constellations, and the stories about them from Greek mythology.


With the moon in its first quarter on Saturday, it will be a prefect time for program attendees to try their newly acquired star gazing skills.


This is a program for all ages and it can also lead to a wonderful nighttime family activity.


Dedicated docents will maintain the visitor center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays through October. If anyone is interested in joining our superb team of docents, please leave your name with the docents on duty.


If you are attending the Pear Festival in Kelseyville on Saturday, please visit the CLSPIA booth for information and great shopping. Look for our banner with an American white pelican on it. Chat with our volunteers about our wonderful state parks in Lake County.


At this time, there is no entrance fee to Clear Lake State Park for participating in walks, programs or visiting the museum.


Visit www.clearlakestatepark.org for activity schedule, great photos and park information.


Clear Lake State Park is located at 5300 Soda Bay Road, Kelseyville.
