Gazing in the Garden
Both a special event and excellent educational program, Gazing in the Garden is free and open to the public. This popular event lets people of all ages enjoy an evening on the Great Lawn looking skyward through substantial telescopes. The Oglethorpe Astronomical Association is a key partner in teaching about stars, galaxies, planets and our moon.
