Poster Coming Soon summer 2018 copy

In an age of growing metropolitan areas and their consequential light pollution, our public lands are the last strong holds for night sky preservation. Mount San Jacinto State Park, high above the Coachella Valley, still serves as one of these night sky havens.
Join Park Interpreter Ali Barnes at 8,500 feet to explore the night sky beyond the light pollution of Southern California. As we eagerly wait for the sun to set, learn more about the Hubble Space Telescope and its discoveries at her 30-minute presentation at the Mountain Tram Station. Telescope viewing of Saturn, the Ring Nebula, the Andromeda Galaxy and beyond will follow the presentation.
