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 30, 2015 –6:00 PM –8:00 PM

Join us the night before Halloween to observe and ponder some of the "spookier" fall constellations and their stories.

Upcoming Night Sky programs:

Saturday, November 14, 6:00 PM –8:00 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. Presentations take place no matter the weather. 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: www.csastro.org .
