September 20, 2017, 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ South Rim Campground Amphitheater
Evening Astronomy Programs take place every Wednesday and Friday night at the South Rim Campground Amphitheater. Illustrated ranger-led programs are followed by night sky viewing with telescopes and local astronomers on weeks closest to the New Moon when the weather permits.
Weeks closest to the Full Moon aren't likely to have astronomers with telescopes but there will still be an astronomy themed evening program talk in the amphitheater.

Robert Gay will present a talk entitled "The Paleontology of Bears Ears National Monument; an Overview.” Gay is a paleontologist who has spent the last 17 years exploring the rise of the age of dinosaurs across the Colorado Plateau. Much of that work has focused on the Triassic-aged rocks in and around what is now Bears Ears National Monument. In 2016 he helped craft language protecting paleontological resources in the Bears Ears proclamation issued by President Obama. Robert received his undergraduate degree in biology from Northern Arizona University and is finishing his Master's Degree at the University of Arizona. He currently works as the Education Director for Colorado Canyons Association, a public lands education and stewardship nonprofit in Grand Junction, Colorado. The public is welcome to attend at 7 pm at the monthly meeting of the Chipeta Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society.
