Echo Bluff Sate Park invites the public to enjoy a night of summer sky star gazing during its Mid-Night Madness astronomy program beginning at 11 p.m. Saturday, July 7, at the park’s Bluff Top Pavilion.

This unique program gives participants a one-of-a-kind opportunity to join the Dent County Astronomers group to look at constellations and star clusters and more in this dark sky event. The moon will not rise until after the program’s conclusion at 1 a.m.

Participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for this outdoor event and to bring a chair. There will be several telescopes set up and binoculars available to view the different parts of the sky.
