Enjoy a Star Party Tuesday |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
The Catawba Science Center is collaborating with the Catawba Valley Astronomy Club to host a Star Party Tuesday.
Amateur astronomers have a great knack for discovering new celestial bodies. Now it’s your turn to take a glimpse into the night sky and gain knowledge of what can be located using a blink comparator. CVAC will instruct visitors about this technique to find asteroids and comets.
Young stargazers can create their own take home constellations. Plus, they can test their ability to save the Earth from a rubble pile asteroid collision using a Great Balls of Fire! exhibition component at the library.
Tuesday's event starts at 7 p.m. at the Sherrills Ford Library - 8456 Sherrills Ford Road in Sherrills Ford.
Refreshments will be provided and don’t forget to register for giveaways too – participants have a chance to win a Galileoscope.
Activities are in conjunction with CSC’s current exhibit, Great Balls of Fire!, Sponsored by Catawba Valley Medical Center, CommScope, Frye Regional Medical Center, von Drehle Corporation, Drillers Service Inc., Shurtape and TSH Charitable Foundation. Programming for this event is sponsored by the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
The Great Balls of Fire! exhibit runs through December 30, 2012.
