Sipp Bay Preserve Night Sky Watch

Are you interested in the wonders of the night sky? On Friday, April 8, join Maine Coast Heritage Trust staff and Charlie Sawyer from Downeast Amateur Astronomers for an evening of star gazing at the Sipp Bay Preserve in Perry. Observe some new constellations and planets with help from a pro!

We will meet at the Sipp Bay lower parking lot at 7:00 p.m. Dress warmly and bring binoculars and a flashlight with the lens covered with red cellophane to view the sky map that will be provided. A rain date is set for April 9.
