Saturday, June 24, 7:30 p.m.—HUBBARDTON—Celebrate summer and the longest days of the year for Deep Sky Night at the Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Site Saturday, June 24, 7:30-11 p.m. First, explore the mysteries of the sun before it sets, and then settle in to observe the night sky with members of the Green Mountain Astronomers. They will share their own telescopes, including Vermont’s largest commercially made telescope dedicated to solar astronomy.
Bring blankets, flashlights, and, if available, binoculars or telescopes. The Hubbardton Battlefield has little modern light pollution and a sweeping open sky, and is the perfect spot to observe the heavens. The program is dependent on weather and sky conditions. Call ahead, at 802-273-2282, to confirm the program. Admission is by donation.
The battlefield is located in Hubbardton on Monument Hill Road, seven miles north of Route 4 from Castleton or six miles east of Route 30 in Hubbardton. Regular admission is $3 for adults and free for children under 15.
