DPAS Hosts Viewing Night on Oct. 10

On Oct. 10 at 7 pm, the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society (DPAS) will host another viewing night at the Astronomy Campus at Crossroads at Big Creek. DPAS gathers on the Saturday evening closest to the new moon, when the sky is at its darkest because then, the stars, planets and deep sky objects are at their brightest. And in October, the early sunsets enable viewers to start exploring the night sky early in the evening. The gate at the top of the hill, 2200 Utah, will open at 7 pm. DPAS members will be on hand in the Observatory and the StarGarden to help visitors navigate the night sky. This gathering is free and open to the public.

On Oct. 11 at 4:30 pm, get some healthy exercise and join the naturalist in search of the green and gold in nature. Meet at the Collins Learning Center.

Visitors and those interested in volunteering at Crossroads are invited to the monthly meeting of Friends of Crossroads on Oct. 13 at 6:30 pm. Each month, volunteer opportunities and future plans are discussed. Meet in the Collins Learning Center.

Crossroads at Big Creek is a preserve welcoming learners of all ages to programs in science, history and the environment. The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay, is open daily 2 – 4:30 pm, and during scheduled events.
