    Due to poor weather conditions for stargazing, Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation is canceling its “Night Under the Stars” event set for Friday, July 17, at the Historic Hacienda de la Canoa in Green Valley.

    According to the astronomers scheduled to lead the event, rain is possible, but definitely cloudy skies are forecast; thus, poor conditions for stargazing. NRPR staff also will place a notice on the ranch gates stating event is canceled.  

    “We’ve hosted three of these stargazing nights at Canoa and more than 300 people have attended, including some from as far away as Marana and Oro Valley,” said Valerie Samoy, NRPR special staff assistant.
