Free Star Gazing Event Sparkles into Pensacola Beach

Not a bad place to enjoy star gazing, huh?

There they stand, the innumerable stars, shining in order like a living hymn, written in light.  ~N.P. Willis

I can imagine what star-gazing on the beach would be like. It would be heavenly.

The Gulf would whisper its peaceful melody; the cool evening breeze would wrap around my shoulders. The sugar-sand would feel soft on my feet. All while I wondered at the vast canvas of stars and planets twinkling overhead.

If it sounds sweet to you, too, check out the Escambia Amateur Astronomers' Association Evening Under the Stars -Free Star Gazing Event. Just sparkle over to the Gulfside Pavilion (735 Pensacola Beach Blvd, Pensacola Beach, FL 32561, phone: 850-932-1500) on Oct. 19 –20, 2012 to discover the wonder of the night sky on beautiful Pensacola Beach.

Telescopes and binoculars will be set up for views of the Moon, planets and other celestial objects. The Event will start just before sunset, clear skies permitting. Free parking is available in the Casino Beach parking lot, near the Beach Ball Water Tower.
