The skies at night in Summit County are a sight to behold. Wouldn’t you love to know more about what you are seeing? On Friday, March 27, at 7 p.m. join photographer Daniel McVey and travel to the stars at the final program in the Friends of the Libraries Travel Series, “Summit County Nightscapes,” at the North Branch Library in Silverthorne.

“I use my photos of the Summit County night sky to talk about the sky as a calendar and how various cultures used the night sky,” McVey said.

Participants will learn a bit about the history of classic constellations and how they were named and used by people throughout time.

“My presentation includes photography, backyard astronomy and mythology,” McVey said.

The Friends of the Libraries presents these talks as part of their fundraising efforts to help the libraries purchase books and other supplies. This talk is for all ages, so bring the family and learn more about what’s in the sky. The free presentation will be held in the Blue River Room of the North Branch Library in Silverthorne.

Call (970) 468-5887 or visit for more information on the series or to participate in future slide shows.
