Lafayette Blue Springs State Park; 799 NW Blue Spring Road; Mayo, FL 32066

Join the University of Florida Astro Outreach and park staff at Lafayette Blue Springs State Park for a night under the stars. The Springs and Stars event is a stargazing session plus educational activities. Telescopes will be set-up for viewing celestial objects such as planets, stars, and galaxies in the night sky along with constellation tours. Our educational activities use everyday, ordinary objects to introduce key and complex science concepts about the universe in an engaging and understandable way. Interactive, hands-on activities include making a pocket solar system, walking out the scale of the universe, and astronomy in a cup. Also, enjoy thought-provoking conversations with the team of traveling astronomers.
The park gate will stay open late. Stop by for stargazing or come early to set up camp on one of our first-come, first-served tent campsites and stay all night, sleeping under the stars.
