    Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation is hosting its third “A Night Under the Stars” event May 29 at the Historic Hacienda de la Canoa.

    The stargazing will run from 8 to 10 p.m. and volunteers from the Sonora Astronomical Society will help visitors use telescopes for their celestial viewing and offer an educational introduction to the night sky.

    Visitors can come to the ranch at 7 p.m. to enjoy a self-guided tour of the Historic Hacienda de la Canoa before star-gazing. Docents will be on hand to share the fascinating stories of the people who lived and worked on the ranch. Children are welcome at this family-friendly event.

    Flashlights are recommended for after-dark walking and visitors can bring lawn chairs if they would like.
