Dark Star Park Day Coming Soon on August 1st
Dark Star Park Day is coming up on August 1, 2016. Each year on this date at 9:32 AM, actual shadows cast by the poles and spheres align with permanent forms in the shape of the shadows on the ground beneath them. The date marks the day that William Henry Ross purchased the land that later became Rosslyn. To commemorate the day, Mary Dallao of the Rosslyn BID has written an article about the park's history and creator Nancy Holt, and Arlington TV will be screening The Making of Dark Star Park for the month of July every day at 5:30 PM.
