The York County Astronomical Society will conduct a free Public Observing Starwatch, 8-10 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, at the YCAS observatory, John C. Rudy County Park.

View the January skies through YCAS telescopes and let their experienced members guide you on a tour of celestial wonders, including stars, planets, nebulae, and the moon. Participants may also bring their own telescopes and share experiences with other amateur astronomers. Star charts are available to help with the exploration of the nighttime sky.

The event will only be held if it is clear or partly cloudy out.

For all observing activities at the park, if the weather is questionable, check the YCAS voice message at (717) 578-9109 for notice of any late cancellations. If it is clear or mostly clear, the activity will occur as scheduled. If it is completely cloudy, raining or snowing, the activity will be cancelled.

For directions to the observatory, visit (the observatory is inside the park, not at the administrative headquarters).
