STAR PARTY – OVERNIGHT TO VIEW THE PERSEID METEOR SHOWERS!

Thursday, August 12, 2010 @ 12:00 AM-9:00 AM

The STAR PARTY is an annual favorite! Rich Heuermann, Administrative Officer, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, NASA Missouri Space Grant Consortium, Washington University and St. Louis Astronomical Society will provide an overview of the night sky and the Perseids. Be prepared to stay up late! Let’s hope for good weather and a clear sky as we view hundreds of shooting stars! Cost is minimal at $30 each which includes welcome bar-b-q, snacks, night in a log cabin, guided night hike, guided Perseid viewing, and continental breakfast!

Junior Academy Event – open to Junior Academy members and their families (siblings need to be over 7 years old to attend)
