Come and use high powered telescopes to view the planets and the stars and members of the Richmond Astronomical Society will be there to help you identify the various celestial bodies. Plus, you are in a gorgeous spot at the confluence of the James and Appomattox Rivers. You will probably want to bring a jacket, flashlight, and your own telescope if you have one, along with a blanket to lay back on. The star gazing will begin at sunset, but come early and explore Appomattox Plantation and see General Grant’s Cabin.
