Posted Thursday, September 13, 2012 --- 7:50 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Star gazers still have a few more chances to admire the night sky from Wisconsin state parks this fall through the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Universe in the Park program.

The program places UW-Madison astronomy experts in the parks during the camping season. Park users can listen to their lectures, ask questions and gaze through a telescope at the stars.

The program runs through Oct. 31 at various parks around the state. A full schedule and locations are available on the program's website, http://www.astro.wisc.edu/the-public/universe-in-the-park/.
