Note: This event has been cancelled due to forecast cloud cover and snow in the parking area. It will be rescheduled for a later date in April.

Join the Astronomical Society of Southern New England and the Buzzards Bay Coalition for a stargazing walk at The Bogs. Far away from the city lights, the 500-acre Mattapoisett River Reserve offers visitors a dark, expansive sky to view the stars. As you gaze through telescopes at the wonders of deep space, you’ll look for planets, constellations and galaxies.

Please dress warmly in multiple layers and bring a flashlight. Telescopes will be provided.
