Event Details

Hanna Park Public Stargazing
Saturday, May 18, 2024

Stargazing at Hanna Park hosted by the Northeast Florida Astronomical Society [NEFAS]
Get ready to see stars, planets, the Moon, and interesting sky objects, and the general public is most welcome!

Location: Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, 500 Wonderwood Dr, Jacksonville, FL 32233
*Park entry fee is $5 per car.
*You must have paid and entered NO LATER THAN 7:00 PM when the gate entrance is closed for the evening. There will not be re-entry once you leave.
*Find NEFAS in Parking Lot #8. Limit your use of vehicle headlights whenever possible during stargazing hours. Bring red lights if you have them.
*Restrooms, and water fountain available, but few lights. You may wish to bring a flashlight for the restrooms.
*Consider bug spray in case it is needed. Please be mindful of any insecticide overspray that may reach telescope equipment and apply in another location.
*All NEFAS volunteers bring their personal stargazing equipment and will instruct guests how to look at the sky objects safely without damage. Adults may need to assist children.

*If you are considering purchasing a telescope this is an opportunity to examine several different types and sizes of telescope – ask lots of questions! If you are having trouble with your own telescope, bring it along and one of our Telescope Doctors will take a look at it.
*Sometimes cloudy conditions make it unfeasible to stargaze. NEFAS members WILL BE AVAILABLE regardless of inclement weather (Unless it snows!)

We hope to see you there!
