Haleakala National Park is holding a star-watching program from 7:30 to 8:30 tonight in Hosmer Grove, just inside the park.

Weather permitting, the park staff will point out the Little Dipper, the North Star (Hokupaa), the bright stars Vega and Arcturus (Hokule’a) and major constellations, including Scorpius (Maui’s fishhook), Aquila the Eagle and Cygnus the Swan. There is also a thin crescent moon in the constellation Libra.

Participants are advised to dress warmly and, if possible, bring a red-filtered flashlight and binoculars.

The program is free, although space is limited. Entry to the park costs $10 per vehicle.

Call 572-4402.
