Nature Walks on Tybee Island’s Atlantic Ocean Beaches: Discover Night Sky Stars & Beach Morning Glory Flowers

When visiting Tybee Island, Georgia, stroll and enjoy the flat 5 miles of beaches.  Lighthouse Inn reminds, “Remember to look up for star gazing in the night sky, and look down where beach flowers surprise in the dunes — like these beach morning glories.”

The Oglethorpe Astronomical Association (OAA) plans an evening at the Tybee Pier, scheduled the Friday closest to the first quarter moon.  The organization’s president, Felecia Burrow, shares, “Our scheduled dates for the remainder of 2011 are August 5, September 2, October 7, November 4, and December 2, 2011.”

“If the weather is uncooperative on Friday, we usually try again on Saturday.  We are thrilled to have guests – that is why we are there, to bring astronomy to the public.  We usually set up at dusk and are there for several hours thereafter. The summer skies can be contrary, but there are some beautiful things to see in the summer. We are fortunate this summer to have Saturn gracing our sky.  Please encourage your guests to join us, we would love to show them the sky. (We also have some members who go out to the pier on nonscheduled evenings.  You can tell your guests to look for someone with what looks like a cannon out on the pier.)”
