Volunteers Needed for Starry Night at the Maryhill Museum

Seeking RCA volunteers with telescopes to participate in this event, Saturday, July 15, 2017, 5 p.m. onward:

Join us at Maryhill for a magical overnight campout and stargazing experience in one of the most majestic settings imaginable.  Volunteers from Rose City Astronomers will provide telescopes to give visitors awe-inspiring views of the summer night sky. Catch glimpses of the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy, Sagittarius, and even some meteors if we are lucky! Troy Carpenter from the Goldendale Observatory will inspire and inform our special views. Come early and enjoy sun-viewing during the afternoon with the Friends of the Goldendale Observatory, and the program Loïe Fuller in the Garden. Don’t miss this fantastic, family-friendly event!

RCA volunteers can camp overnight on the museum grounds and will receive free food vouchers for Loie’s café for dinner (Loie’s will close by 7:00 p.m.) on Saturday. Coffee and breakfast pastries will be provided Sunday morning.

To volunteer, contact RCA outreach coordinator Michael McKeag.
