FIND Outdoors is partnering with Atlanta Astronomy Club at the highest point in Georgia to discover the hidden mysteries of Georgia’s darkest sky. Expert astronomers will guide participants through the night, interpreting the wonders of the universe through their galactic stories and expertise. You will also be given the opportunity to use high powered telescopes to explore our universe even further. You’ll become a “Guardian of the Galaxy” after spending an evening learning about the magic of deep space and North Georgia’s incredible nightscape.

Please arrive 30 minutes before the program start time at 8:30 pm  

What to Bring

If you have one, please bring a flashlight. Red-light flashlights are preferred.  

Please dress warm and wear close-toed shoes. It is often 10-15 degrees cooler on the mountain. We recommend bringing layer, blankets, hats, and gloves. If you do not need them you can leave them in your vehicle.

Bring a folding chair to sit on during the program. A folding or lawn chair would be more comfortable to sit on than a blanket.  

If you have any questions, please contact Liberti Gates (Anna Ruby Falls Program Manager) at Liberti@gofindoutdoors.org.
