TIPPECANOE — The Warsaw Astronomical Society will conduct public observing nights at Potawatomi Wildlife Park beginning one hour after dark Saturday, Aug. 27, and Sept. 3. Both events are at the park observing field. Observing is pending clear skies. Call ahead if partly cloudy.
Society members will be in attendance to share the night sky through telescopes of all sizes. Objects will include constellations and an array of other near- and deep-sky objects. Questions may be directed to the Potawatomi Wildlife Park director at (574)498-6550 or [email protected]
Admission to Potawatomi Wildlife Park is free. The park is located along the Tippecanoe River in Marshall County, just across the Kosciusko County line. The entrance is approximately 1/2 mile south of SR 10 and 1/2 mile north of the Tippecanoe Bridge on SR 331.
Recognized as Indiana’s first official dark-sky preserve, the property is a favorite site for local and regional amateur astronomers.
