Contact: John Kelly, Public Information Officer, 207-288-8703
The Acadia Night Sky Festival will offer a free "Shuttle to the Stars" as public transportation to the Star Party on Cadillac Mountain, which will take place from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 28. The public is invited to drop in at any time during the program (the best star viewing will be after 9:00 p.m.) and visit with volunteer astronomers and park rangers who will describe constellations and other night sky features visible with the naked eye, binoculars, and telescopes. The road going up to Cadillac Mountain will be closed to all motor vehicles (except those that need parking for persons with disabilities) at 6:30 p.m. so visitors must use the shuttle to attend this event.
