Stargazing at Poplar Forest
We met last evening with Dr. Neal Sumerlin, Director of the Belk Astronomical Observatory, Claytor Nature Study Center at Poplar Forest, just west of Lynchburg, Virginia. A fabulously clear and balmy evening allowed us to see and learn about numerous stars and other objects found in our late spring sky. Poplar Forest is just far enough away from city lights to not be affected by residual lights radiating into the heavens. A once a year event, we will attend again next year and you might want to also. Contact us in January for 2012’s date.
