Bandy Creek - Astronomy event

Post  chuck on Sun Jun 24, 2012 4:00 pm

Here's some pics from my trip to BANDY CREEK CG (Big South Fork NRRA). My camping site (C-6).. and pictures from the Star Gazing event. University of Tennessee prof. Paul Lewis presented a program called "The Sky Is Falling".. then everyone got to look through several big telescopes. Pretty cool!

Looks like a nice site and a really neat program.

I have set up on the same site at BANDY CREEK three times. I looked at some other sites while walking around this weekend.. I might try a different loop, sometime. There really aren't any bad campsites.. it is a beautiful campground.

That sounds like such a great trip. I will have to plan that one for a future trip.

So Chuck, if you are hooked on astronomy, I've got an expensive telescope (surprise gift from years ago) that has only been used about 8 times. I could certainly make you a deal that would be cheaper than anything the telescope or mail order will make you.

Let me look at it to get the details. It was about $800 new, but that was about 8 or 9 years ago. It mostly decorates a spot in the living room (much to my wife's displeasure).
