On Saturday, February 13 join us for a Valentine's celebration beneath the starry skies of Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument! This evening astronomy program will feature an indoor ranger presentation followed by outdoor laser-guided constellation tour and telescope observations. Members of the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society will be on hand to share their love of the night sky and provide telescope viewing of the moon, star clusters, nebulae, and other celestial wonders.

The program will be held at the Florissant Fossil Beds Visitor Center from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM.

Please note that the telescope viewing is weather-dependent, and takes place only if clear. Presentations take place no matter the weather. Dress warmly in layers. Bring binoculars or a flashlight if you wish (red-filtered lights only please).

These programs are generously assisted by the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society. For more information on this partnership, please visit their website: www.csastro.org .

Admission for the program is the regular park entrance fee, which is $5 per adult (16 years and older);children and federal pass holders are free. For additional information, please call (719) 748-3253 or visit our website: www.nps.gov/flfo or on Facebook at /FlorissantNPS
