Look At The Stars

October 8th & 9th, 2021

FREE TO THE PUBLIC. An incredible opportunity for those in the community of all ages who are interested in learning more about the night sky!

Prior registration is free but required by October 1st. Please call 844-424-CAMP.

Join us at the concession building for a cookout, funnel cakes, and refreshments on the lawn before sunset. More menu details later! For your comfort, please bring a lawn chair or blanket. No coolers allowed.

Follow us on Facebook for the food menu and prices. Further details to come!

The Meadow Campground is excited to offer to the public "Look At The Stars," a night sky viewing at our campground! The event will be presented by Truman State Associate Professor of Physics, Vayujeet Gokhale. He will direct guests to locations in the sky using an astronomy laser pointer, providing education on constellations, planets, and galaxies. He is going to provide a limited number of binoculars and telescopes for guests to share. We welcome guests who own their own viewing devices to bring them to the event! 

 

We will begin at sunset looking for our Moon and Venus before they set below the horizon. Once it's darker, we will look at Jupiter and its moons and Saturn's rings.

After, we will begin looking at "deep-sky objects," which include nebulae, star clusters, and galaxies. 

These objects include: 

The Great Globular cluster in Hercules (You can see 100s of stars all clustered together in a nice little cotton fuzzball). 

The Ring Nebula. This is a dead/dying star -- some stars when they "die", eject their outer layers in a series of convulsions lasting several tens of thousands of years. This object is one such -- it appears like a small smoke ring.

Dumbbell Nebula. Another dead/dying star. Appears like a dumbbell!

 

The Andromeda Galaxy. Our nearest regular neighbor galaxy. Contains about 200-billion stars!! Appears as a glorious spiral in some of the fancier telescopes. 

We will view parts of our own galaxy, such as the Milky Way. 

He will also do a constellation run, where he will point to prominent stars and constellations and talk about some of the myths associated with these constellations.
