West Virginia Wesleyan College is teaming up with Stonewall Jackson State Park to host its next ‘Universe in the Park’ event on Feburary 15.
Attendees will meet at the resort lodge to start the night.
It’s the latest in a series of events organized by the college to educate the public about the stars and highlight area state parks.
Organizers said it’s also a way for people to come together under something they’re all familiar with.
“The sky is a thing that you share with everybody. You walk outside at night under a beautiful sky and you point out the moon to your kids, right? This is just something we all share,” said organizer and WVWC professor Tracey Delaney.
Delaney says they plan to hold similar events throughout the year.
