Join us at Rustic Oaks Park on Saturday, September 7 for a free and fun evening of amateur astronomy.  Families and children of all ages can learn about different stars, planets and the moon from 7 to 9:30 p.m., rain or shine. Participants are welcome to bring their own telescopes or use the ones provided!

Besides current celestial events, each event will include:
•    A  100’ model of the solar system (Sun to Mars – Jupiter and Saturn in the distance) around 7 p.m. for kids of all ages in the summer (before night fall)
•    Major constellations and asterisms and their legends
•    Telescope observation of the stars and visible planets
•    Binocular astronomy demonstrations
•    Computer displays of free astronomy software, DVDs and presentations in the shelter during inclement weather.
•    Q&A with amateur astronomers and scientists
•    Flyers describing the moon and its phases, the scale of the solar system, the major constellations and asterisms visible now, a list of relevant URLs, free software from the net, etc.
