In partnership with the Shiloh School Astronomy Club, Belle Isle State Park will host a Moon Viewing Party from 8-9:30 p.m. Friday, July 16, at the Motor Boat Launch, Belle Isle State Park, 1632 Belle Isle Road, Lancaster.

The Shiloh School Astronomy Club is sponsored by Northumberland Preservation Inc., which owns and manages Shiloh School.
