Eureka Springs is just a short trip to Hobbs State Park. The park offers throughout the year a variety of programs open to the general public. The first program of the new year is an Astronomy Program at the conservation area.
The winter sky offer a wonderful opportunity for night viewing, personally I think it is the best time of the year to view the stars and yes, planets in the winter sky's. Jupiter and her 4 moons and Uranus are visible in the south western sky.
An Astronomy program is presented six times a year by Mr.McDaniel, he will have for use larger telescopes, however, bring small binoculars ,viewing of small cluster is very easy to spot,
