Oliver Lee Memorial State Park and the Amateur Astronomers Group host a star party highlighting the early fall evening sky. The Milky Way and the constellations of the Summer Triangle reign supreme. Ever wonder why our galaxy is called the Milky Way? Learn why the Milky Way that we do see represents only a small portion of our galaxy. Dress warmly come early and witness a beautiful Dog Canyon sunset.
