An Evening Under the Stars
Winner of the Evening Under the Stars receives a party for up to ten (10).
Your chances of winning are high. And if you do, you and nice of your nine friends will be invited to be special guests of the McCormick Observatory. There you can look into the heavens from the biggest telescope in the area.
Truly a stellar experience.
The lucky winner of this item will receive a dinner for 10 catered by the C&O Restaurant at McCormick Observatory, along with a guided tour of the night sky by University of Virginia astronomer Dr. Edward Murphy.
As one high-bidder put it, “Astronomers, violas, french gypsy guitar, cocktail star lessons on wet grass, Brecht, Galileo, great drink and food, and the rings of Saturn as clear and seemingly near as day. Dave Simpson’s and The Observatory’s enactment of this gift could not possibly have been more creative, generous, or magical. We left the mundane for the stars. No one there will ever cease to fondly remember.”
Cocktails in the library, history of the observatory, dinner in the dome room, go outside for night sky tour, look through the telescope.
A night you and 9 friends will never forget – all for only a $100 dollar chance.
