Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument will host a night sky program entitled "Slightly Spooky Star Stories" to enjoy the Halloween season by investigating some of the mysterious stories of the fall constellations.

Night Sky Program: "Slightly Spooky Star Stories"

Friday, October 7, 2016, 6:30 PM –8:30 PM

Night Sky Programs begin with a short presentation in the Visitor Center, followed by stargazing with telescopes, binoculars, and laser-guided tours of the stars and constellations. Please note that the telescope viewing is weather-dependent, and takes place only if clear. Dress warmly;nights can be cool even in summer. 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: .

There are no additional fees for any park programs beyond the daily entrance fee. In addition to regular daily programs, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument offers 15 miles of beautiful, yet lesser known, hiking trails to explore, a free Junior Ranger Program, a park video and museum exhibits, and bookstore.
