Starfield exploration with Crewe Astronomy Club

Published 5:06 pm Saturday, May 7, 2022

Camp Paradise Access and the center of High Bridge will be the location for a spring sky program, starting at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 7.

From a point high above the Appomattox River’s flood plain, visitors can explore the cosmos from High Bridge with the Crewe Astronomy Club. Members of this organization are friendly, knowledgeable and generous with their time and access to their equipment.

High Bridge Trail is a day use park, so night programs are a special experience here. We suggest red filters on all personal lighting. White lights interrupt visitor’s night vision, and can degrade other people’s experiences.

This event is free, but there is a $5 parking fee. For more information about this program at High Bridge Trail, call the office at (434) 315-0457, or email highbridgetrail@dcr.virginia.gov.
