Woodside Farm Creamery

Telescope Night


This season we will again be at the Woodside Farm Creamery in Hockessin to share views through our telescopes. This is a fun opportunity to meet with the public and share the hobby.

See the craters of the moon, rings of Saturn, or moons of Jupiter with a decent telescope. Always fun, and a reminder of what lies beyond the grasp of our own eyes! Last year we had great cooperation from the weather, so let's hope for the same this season!

All events fall on Friday nights with a rain/cloud date on the following Saturday. The schedule can be found on the Creamery website:



We make a judgment call based on the weather the morning of each event, but tend to err towards the side of hosting the event. Even if the skies are not cooperative, the ice cream is always cold and it is fun to hang out and socialize. If you have an easy-to-setup telescope or binoculars, please bring them. 

 If not, come anyhow, to share your knowledge and have some ice cream with the public. Our focus will be on the moon and whatever planets are up at that time.

Woodside is located at 378 North Star Road, Newark, DE 19711. More information can be found on their website.

Here’s hoping to see you there for some great outreach, homemade ice cream and comaraderie among members and those potential new members experiencing the night sky through a telescope for the first time!!
