The Rockfish Valley Foundation and the Charlottesville Astronomical Society (CAS) will host an evening
of astronomical observing for the public on Saturday, April 14th, beginning at 8 PM. The observing site
will be the field behind Spruce Creek Gallery and Park on Glenthorne Loop in Nellysford. Visitors may
bring their own telescopes or look through those brought by CAS. In case of rain or extremely cloudy
weather, the event will be postponed until the following evening at the same location.
Drive south 1.4 miles from the Valley Green Shopping Center on Rt. 151 in Nellysford to Spruce
Creek Gallery and turn left onto Glenthorne Loop (Rt. 627), immediately past the gallery. Drive down
Glenthorne Loop for about 2 tenths of a mile and turn left to enter the field, where you will find parking and the observing site.
