Tonight is Starwatch at Bays Mountain Park. Come view the night sky for free with large telescopes. The event begins at 8:30 PM. Every Saturday night in April there will be a free viewing at Bays Mountain Observatories. If the weather is poor, the planetarium theater will be used to tour the current night sky!
Special thanks to Adam Thanz from Bays Mountain Park & Planetarium and Dr. Gary Henson from ETSU for this information.
