Virginia Beach, Va. – Take your stargazing to Mount Trashmore Park.

The Virginia Beach City Public Schools Planetarium along with local astronomy clubs are teaming up with Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation to host the Mount Trashmore Star Party Friday, March 22, 2013 at Mount Trashmore Park.

The event begins when the sky gets dark – and lasts until 11:00 p.m.

The public is invited to observe night sky wonders through a variety of telescopes. Learn to identify constellations in the sky as they are pointed out by planetarium coordinator Chuck Dibbs and the Back Bay Amateur Astronomers.

The goal is to share the beauty of the night sky with anyone wishing to learn about it. Event is dependent on clear skies.
