Night Under the Stars at Morning View Heritage Area

Kenton County Parks & Recreation (KCP&R), Kenton County Conservation District, and the NKU Haile Planetarium are hosting a free Star Gazing event on Saturday, September 15 beginning at 7 PM. Join us as we learn about what is in the night sky.

The NKU Haile Planetarium will provide telescopes and expertise in the field, describe observations, answer questions, and help open our eyes to the wonder of the universe. Who knows what the night sky will reveal? We welcome you to bring your telescope and binoculars.

Overnight Tent Camping ONLY options will be available. Pitch tents starting on Saturday at 5:00 pm in designated areas. Break camp down on Sunday by 10:00 am. Food will not be provided. Port-a-lets will be available.

The Morning View Heritage Area is located at 15168 Decoursey Pike, Morning View 41063.

Driving Directions: From Independence KY, go south on KY-17 (Madison Pk). Continue south through the KY-16 intersection. After an “Atwood” community sign, turn east (left) on KY-2042 (Moffett Rd). After 5.2 miles turn right on Kenton Station Rd (which is still KY-2042). Turn right on KY-177 and drive south about 5 minutes. Look for the preserve’s parking lot about ½ mile south of the KY-14 intersection where there is a Morning View Post Office. There is no sign yet but the new gravel parking lot is on the west side of Decoursey (KY-177), on the opposite side of the road from the railroad track. It has 2 entrances. A black barn with above sign is obvious behind a wood fence.

Pre-registration is encouraged. Call Rhonda Ritzi from KCP&R at (859) 525-PLAY (7529). There is no cost to attend this event, however KCP&R collects donations of non-perishable food and personal care items for Be Concerned.
