The eponymous star aficionado at Mark's Tree Farm invites sky gazers onto one of Captain John's trusty vessels, which ventures away from the lights of the city to reveal thousands of stars overhead—and, during the Perseid meteor shower, the instantaneous blaze of meteors entering the atmosphere—for a 3.5-hour astronomy tour. High-powered laser pointers draw temporary maps throughout the lesson, which steers eyeballs toward galaxies and planets. Mark also points out constellations, including Orion and the three huge balls of tinfoil that make up Orion’s Belt. Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and the tour is not recommended for children younger than 12. Weather and sky conditions dictate visibility.
