UMaine Joins Star Party on Cadillac Mountain

Staff from the University of Maine Maynard F. Jordan Planetarium and Observatory will participate in the fifth annual Acadia Night Sky Festival from 8–10 p.m. Sept. 28 on the summit of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park.

Planetarium staff will point out constellations and other night sky features visible with the naked eye, binoculars and telescopes. Shuttle buses will transport visitors from Hulls Cove Visitor Center to the 1,530-foot-high summit free of charge for the event, which is weather-dependent. Call 207.200.1536 for updates.

The Acadia Night Sky Festival in Bar Harbor runs Sept. 26–30. For more information, visit
