The winter solstice this year will be a special one as Jupiter and Saturn will align creating a bright “Christmas Star”. To mark this special occasion, we’re hosting a winter solstice hike on December 21. Details are included in the news story above. Please join us at 4 p.m. at MacLennan Park Trails, 1 SW Cedar Crest Road. Dress warmly. We’ll hike for about 45 minutes and then, weather permitting, we’ll gather at sunset and watch the southwest skies for the show. Bring along something to sit on and maybe a warm beverage!
