Two separate FREE sessions: one at sunrise, one at sunset
If a trip to England for the Stonehenge Summer Solstice Sunrise is not in the cards for your family, Bluff Lake Nature Center is offering the next best thing: Colorado Stonehenge Sunrise 2017. There is a definitive connection between our natural world and the world above us. (Even the Druids understood this when they began building Stonehenge 5000 years ago!)
Plan to arrive at Bluff Lake Nature Center parking lot at 5:10am (this is NOT a typo!) for session 1 on June 21st. Bring your thermos of coffee or tea, your muesli and a juice box for this unique experience and witness the summer solstice sunrise in much the same way the Druids did after completing Stonehenge. A campfire will be provided for those who arrive early. Bluff Lake will provide an informative interpretive program about Stonehenge and the summer solstice. Dr. Phil Schmidt, PhD (Aeronautics and Astronautics/ MIT and Engineering/ Stanford) is a summer Denver Resident where he volunteers with Bluff Lake Nature Center and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
THEN, the second session starts later in the evening at 7:45pm. Dr. Schmidt will also lead a program where participants will model the Earth’s movement through the solar system to better understand our seasons and nature’s relationship to planetary alignment.
The programs are FREE and open to the public. As space is limited, registration is encouraged at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on programs at Bluff Lake Nature Center, visit Bluff Lake’s web site.
