STAR PARTY – OVERNIGHT TO VIEW THE PERSEID METEOR SHOWERS & GEOCACHING!
Saturday, August 11, 2012 @ 5:30 PM
The STAR PARTY is an annual favorite! Junior Academy students and their families (over age 7) will be welcomed with a bar-b-q, Geocaching, and a guided night hike! Rich Hauermann, Administrative Officer, Washington University Earth and Planetary Science, the St. Louis Astronomical Society and NASA Missouri Space Grant Consortium, will provide an overview of the night sky followed by telescope viewing. Be prepared to stay up late. Let’s hope for good weather and a clear sky as we view hundreds of shooting stars!
