Reminder Cosmos & Cocoa Tonight—Friday, December 22, 1017

Cosmos & Cocoa will be held as planned tonight!  The experts at Morehead Planetarium expect clear skies and a great view of the moon. If you did not RSVP but want to join the party, please do—the more, the merrier!

Join Governors Village residents for a private skywatching session with Morehead Planetarium staff.

Friday, December 22nd, 6-7 PM at the Stadium Steps in Meadow Park, Governors Park

Morehead staff will bring sky charts, telescopes and provide a laser guided tour of the night sky. The Governors Village Social Committee will provide cocoa and marshmallows. Below are tips for the evening:

  • Please dress warmly.  You are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, sleeping bags and flashlights.
  • It takes approximately 20 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the darkness. If you want to see stars and do not plan on staying long, you may want to consider walking to the park to allow time for your eyes to adjust for optimal skywatching.
  • If you happen to live near the park, and it’s convenient for you, please pull the plug on the beautiful Christmas lights from 6-7 pm Friday, December 22nd. It will help the skywatchers view more stars.

This is an event for everyone, please come out and join your fellow neighbors as we learn about the moon, constellations and planets.

Sponsored by the Governors Village Social Committee for residents of Governors Village community (Forest, Lake, Park, Townes and Village)
