Rappahannock County Park in Virginia, recognized in February of 2019 by the International Dark-Sky Association as a Dark Sky Park with a Silver Tier rating, hosted a Dark Skies night on Saturday that featured a presentation by James Granahan and telescopes on the field. Some of the brighter objects that can be viewed from the park in October include M2, M15, M29, and the Double Cluster; Jupiter will reach its opposition on Monday, the giant planet's closest orbital approach and brightest appearance in our night sky.
