July 5, 2009 (Borrego Springs)--Few celestial sights are as stunning as an August desert sky. On Saturday, August 15, famed astronomer and night sky photographer Dennis Mammana offers an evening of galactic viewing along the Milky Way.  


Mammana invites guests to "witness some of the most magnificent scenery anywhere" from “the nearest of stars and glowing nebulae to the shattered remains of once mighty suns to our galaxy's most distant stellar clusters."


Choose from a package that includes an overnight stay at the Borrego Springs Resort, or a viewing-only program without hotel. Package at the Borrego Springs Resort includes: one night deluxe accommodations on August 15th, indoor slide program followed by naked-eye and telescope viewing (weather permitting), buffet dinner, transportation to viewing site, mini-flashlights, celestial party refreshments, taxes and gratuity.

Taking in the transformation of nature is something I love very much. This review of Borrego Springs Resort, after viewing their website, been added to my list to consider for vacation.
