NEW GLARUS - "Universe in the Park" will return to New Glarus Woods State Park at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, with a program presented by the UW-Madison's Department of Astronomy. The program begins at sunset in the New Glarus Woods Chattermark Amphitheater, with a slideshow of pictures of stars and galaxies taken from the Hubble Space Telescope. Once the sky is dark, everyone will have the opportunity to look through a moderate 8" aperture astronomical telescope to view stars and planets, as well as the Perseids meteor shower, which peaks Aug. 12 to 13.
