Stargazing at Poplar Forest
September 10 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Thomas Jefferson was fascinated by most aspects of science, particularly the study of astronomy. Join Poplar Forest for an illuminating look at the night sky with Trish Cerulli, the Outreach Coordinator for Belk Astronomical Observatory at the Claytor Nature Study Center at the University of Lynchburg.
The evening will begin with a brief presentation about the practice of astronomy and a look at the most recent photographs from the James Webb Space Telescope before moving out to Jefferson’s South Lawn to observe the night sky. Admission is $10 per person.
