Dark Skies, Bright Kids is an outreach organization from the UVA Astronomy Department whose core mission is to bring astronomy activities to elementary school kids throughout Virginia.

They invite you to their 11th Annual Central Virginia Star Party on Saturday, September 25 at Albemarle Ciderworks starting at 6:30 pm. They welcome all members of the community to come star-gaze through telescopes, go on a night sky constellation tour, hear astronomy-themed talks, enjoy cider tastings, and much more.

This event will be outdoors and they will be observing the CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19. You can learn more about the organization and the Star Party on their website.
