You can take your own “Star Trek” over four-days and never leave the earth. The four state parks in Door County will be holding a program called “Universe in the Park”. University of Wisconsin-Madison physics students will host the program. It features a brief power point presentation before the sun sets. Then they’ll help visitors scan the night skies with their high-powered telescopes. Peninsula State Park Naturalist Kathleen Harris says this is a perfect time for star gazing.
“Universe in the Park” will be held Friday at Potawatomi State Park in Sturgeon Bay, Saturday at Peninsula State Park in Fish Creek, Sunday at Newport State Park in Ellison Bay and Monday at Rock Island State Park on Rock Island. It’s a free event, but you’ll need a permanent or day vehicle admission sticker to get into the park. Lawn chairs and insect repellent are also recommended.
