It doesn’t take an astronomer or rocket science to look up into the Milky Way, but soon you’ll have the opportunity to look at the stars with the help of a NASA Langley Skywatchers astronomer.

The Skywatchers are set to point their telescopes to the heavens on Saturday, March 10, at New Quarter Park, according to a York County news release.

“Stargazing with the NASA Skywatchers at New Quarter Park offers a chance for people to come observe the night sky through telescopes and binoculars and see things they otherwise might not get to see,” Skywatcher Paul Tartabini said in the release.

The free event starts as early as 7 p.m. to the public, and folks will have the opportunity to stargaze through Skywatchers’ equipment until 9:30 p.m. (Courtesy photo/York County)
