Death Valley National Park Co-hosts Stargazing Nights - January 31st - February 1st | 7:00-9:30 p.m.

Death Valley, CA—Death Valley National Park and the Las Vegas Astronomical Society (LVAS) will co-host a stargazing opportunity on Friday, January 31st and Saturday, February 1st from 7:00 pm until 9:30 pm.

 

The events will take place at the Furnace Creek Airport near the Furnace Creek Visitor Center. Event participants are encouraged to arrive before 7:30 pm. Carpooling is strongly encouraged due to limited parking.  The program will consist of an informative “Tonight’s Sky” tour each night at 8:00 pm to orient participants to what is visible with the naked eye. The LVAS will point out constellations and explain celestial phenomena in easy to understand language. Participants will have the opportunity to view features of the night sky through high-powered telescopes guided by LVAS members and National Park Service (NPS) park rangers.  Please bring a flashlight and wear closed-toed shoes.

Most famous as the hottest place on Earth and the lowest, driest place in North America, Death Valley National Park also harbors some of the darkest night skies in the United States. Death Valley’s natural darkness, along with NPS actions to reduce excessive outdoor lighting and increase astronomy programming, led the International Dark-Sky Association to designate the park as the third and largest International Dark Sky Park in the U.S.

“Coyote and Puck” Lumoglyphs  by Charles Morgan, Artist Opening Reception  - November 9,  2013 |  3-6 pm

Location: Tecopa Hot Springs Resort

 

Tecopa Artist Group presents an exhibit of Lumoglyphs by Charles Morgan ”Coyote and Puck”. Lumoglyphs described by Charles:

“For the past twenty-five years or so I have been going out into the desert and making photographs at night, during a full moon. I selectively illuminate the rocks, sand, and plant life I find out there with different colors, using a strobe and filters. The light of the full moon slowly illuminates the surrounding areas that are left alone. I also use a flashlight to “draw” graffiti on the rocks/plants and in the air during the exposures. The “marks” I make show up only on the film in my camera, which has been recording all of this during a timed exposure. I like to call this graffiti “environmentally safe.”

SCOTTY’S CASTLE ORGAN CONCERT In Death Valley National Park 6/22 and 6/23

 

5:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. both Friday and Saturday

The Scotty’s Castle Organ Concert is sponsored by the Death Valley Natural History Association and the National Park Service.  The concert is held annually within the Upper Music Room of Scotty’s Castle in Death Valley National Park.  This year’s concert dates are June 22-23, 2012, featuring accomplished Theatre organist, Christian Elliott.  Proceeds for this event help fund the annual maintenance and tuning of the Scotty’s Castle Organ and its associated instruments including: 1121 pipes, a grand piano, glockenspiel, xylophone, chimes, orchestra bells, sleigh bells, bird calls and an assortment of drums and cymbals.

The Welte-Mignon theater pipe organ located in Scotty’s Castle’s Upper Music Room was purchased to accompany silent films.  It is estimated that $50,000 was spent by the Johnsons to purchase the organ and have it delivered and installed in 1928 – just in time for film sound synchronization to be perfected and become the new standard for talking films in the 1930’s.

This unique concert venue is available one weekend each year, after the organ maintenance work has been completed and during the curatorial maintenance of the historic house itself. This work must be completed each year to assist in preserving the entire collection housed at Scotty’s Castle.  The timing is also crucial to ensure that the Upper Music Room space is open for concert seating.

There are only 40 seats for each concert and performances usually sell out well in advance. This year we are offering two performances each night. Concert times are 5:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. both Friday and Saturday, June 22 & 23.

The ticket price is $40 per person.  All proceeds benefit the Scotty’s Castle Theatre Organ and Chimes Tower Maintenance Fund.

The Death Valley Natural History Association (DVNHA) is a non-profit partner of Death Valley National Park dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the natural and cultural history of the Death Valley region.  In addition to providing free literature and support for other programs, DVNHA sponsors the Organ Concert at Scotty’s Castle located at the northern end of Death Valley National Park each year.

To make reservations or to make a direct donation please call the Death Valley Natural History Association at (800)478-8564 ext 10.  For information about Scotty’s Castle, visit the Death Valley National Park website at www.nps.gov/deva.  For more information about organist, Christian Elliott, please visit http://www.christianelliott.com/Christian_Elliott/About_Me.html for his online biography.

Las Vegas Astronomical Society Star Parties 10/12 – 10/13

Furnace Creek, Death Valley NP Death Valley National Park and the Las Vegas Astronomical Society (LVAS)

will co-host a Star Party on Friday and Saturday, October 12-13, 2012.  The event will begin around dusk each evening at the Furnace Creek Airport just north of the Furnace Creek Ranch on Highway 190.  LVAS members will share their knowledge and telescopes with the public for viewing. National Park Rangers will participate as part of Death Valley National Park’s Dark Night Sky series.

The programs will consist of an informative “Tonight’s Sky” tour to orient participants to what is visible in the sky each night beginning around 8pm. They will point out constellations and explain celestial phenomena in easy to understand language.  In addition, solar viewing at the General Store at Furnace Creek will take place from 10am and 2pm on Saturday. Families are welcome.

Death Valley National Park is pursuing an International Dark Sky Park designation to bring attention to its world-class night sky features. The application will be considered by the International Dark Sky Association based in Tucson, AZ. Designation is difficult to achieve and requires strict coherence to lighting guidelines.

Come enjoy the crystal clear desert skies in Death Valley National Park…a rare treasure. For additional information please contact Carole Wendler at 760-786-3276 or visit our listing of ranger programs on the website at http://www.nps.gov/deva/planyourvisit/tours.htm.
