Night Skies in Shenandoah


The cooler temperatures and the cooler Blue Ridge Mountain air at 4,000-foot elevation in Shenandoah National Park makes everything brighter in the night sky. Stars sparkle with more intensity, and constellations come into clearer view. National Parks serve as the perfect oasis away from city light pollution.​

Join Greg Redfern, an adjunct professor/instructor of astronomy since 1984 and a NASA JPL Solar System Ambassador since 2003, for engaging presentations about outer space. If the skies are clear, “Under the Stars at Shenandoah National Park” follows the presentation, where guests move outside to see the night sky in all its glory while listening to sky lore and fascinating sky facts.​

Presentations, free to all park visitors, are held weekly at Skyland Resort and Big Meadows Lodge. Program start times vary based on sunset. A jacket is recommended and a flashlight is helpful. For more information, www.goshenandoah.com/activities-events/astronomy​
