Explore the Night Sky
May 23, 2009 @ 12:00 am EDT
This event is free and is held at the Knob Noster State Park campground in west-central Missouri. Park at the campground entrance or the amphitheater and walk to the back of the campground, near lot #61.Local amateur astronomers will show you how to find your way around the night sky using a few of the brighter stars and constellations. You will have several opportunities to ask questions and look through quality telescopes at Saturn and its rings, double stars, globular clusters(100,000 stars all at once!), and whole galaxies(weather permitting).
