With the aid of an advanced, computerized telescope, you will be taken on a tour of the heavens, pointing out the constellations, the planets, their moons, galaxies, and dying stars by local astronomy junky Dan Johnson. Man-made satellites such as the International Space Station and Hubble Space Telescope are easy to locate if they orbit overhead. For more information visit Astronomy Night & Day.

To accompany this exceptional star gazing in one of the best spots in Kansas will be supper, a wagon ride, and additional entertainment.
