On Friday last week, a Dark Sky Night event was held at Slanesville Garden featuring local experts, Red Henry and Rick Pegg, who educated guests on how to view the nighttime skies. There were 5 telescopes set up ranging from 70mm to 14” in size that guests could use to gaze at the 1st-quarter moon. In addition a moth sheet was on hand that drew a crowd of insects including fireflies, moths and stoneflys. Free glow sticks were handed out as guests went from station to station to learn more about the cool dark skies over Hampshire County.
