The Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area announced on Thursday it will be hosting an astrophotography lecture and night sky viewing on Saturday.
Hobbs State Park-Conservation said the lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the visitor center and after that, there will be a sky viewing at 8:30 p.m..
The conservation is located at 2021 East Highway 12 in Rogers.
The lecture will be run by Sugar Creek Astronomical Society experts who will talk about planetary astrophotography.
The Hobbs State Park-Conservation defines astrophotography as something that records objects within our solar system, such as other planets as far as Neptune.
The lecture will review the proper tools for astrophotography, like a single lens, a reflex camera with low-light capabilities, a fast lens with a long focal length, and a tripod.
When it comes time to view the night sky, the Sugar Creek Astronomical Society will bring their high-quality telescopes so the public can see celestial objects.
Participants will need to dress in warm clothing for local weather conditions, and they are encouraged to bring a red flashlight and a pair of binoculars.
This is a free event, and for more information, contact the park at (479) 789-5000.
