(PAYNETOWN) - Telescopes will be set up on the beach at Paynetown State Recreation Area on Saturday for astronomy viewing from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Visitors can drop by anytime during the hour to look through telescopes and see planets, star clusters and other night-sky highlights.

People should avoid shining their vehicle headlights onto the beach when arriving and departing.

The program requires clear or mostly clear skies. It will be canceled if there is too much cloud cover. If sky conditions look questionable, call the Paynetown Activity Center at (812) 837-9967 after 5 p.m. to check program status.

Property admission is $7 per in-state vehicle or $9 per out-of-state vehicle.
