Arizona State Parks provide fun, educational Star Night Astronomy events. Enjoy the sunset from the upper patio of the Kannally Ranch House at Oracle State Park. Dr. John Barentine of the International Dark-Sky Association, returns to Oracle and offers his extremely educational program "Under Ancient Skies: The Archaeo-astronomy of the Desert Southwest," followed by a Star Party from 7:00 PM.-9:00 PM. Bring your own picnic (also bring a folding chair, red light, sweater or jacket) to the park to enjoy Oracle's cooler evening temperatures. Telescopes and interpretation of night sky objects will be provided by the Amateur Astronomer’s Association . Free with park admission, thanks to event support by Friends of Oracle State Park.
