Explore Your Night Sky at DuPuis Nature Center

Planets

Discover the wonders of the sky during Astronomy Nights at the DuPuis Nature Center. DuPuis is an ideal spot for stargazing that offers an unparalleled view of celestial wonders because it is far enough away from any light pollution caused by urban and suburban development yet it is only a short 30-mile drive from Stuart. The DuPuis Nature Center hosts Astronomy Night in conjunction with the Treasure Coast Astronomical Society. During the event, the Astronomical Society provides a short lecture before hosting an interactive stargazing session. Multiple telescopes are set up so attendees of all ages can observe objects in outer space, gaze upon galaxies and contemplate other constellations.

Join us for an opportunity to view stars, nebulas, planets and neighboring galaxies Saturday, March 18th, 2017 7:00-10:00pm. The lecture will highlight the constellation Orion as we will be viewing the winter’s night sky!starry-night

The event is free and open to the public and donations are encouraged to help support educational programming at DuPuis. Event will take place rain or shine.
