National Astronomy Day is this Saturday, May 10th. As part of the week-long theme, our library hosted a special Star-gazer’s Night in conjunction with the local Astronomical Society.

We learned a lot of neat things during this event so we plan to also attend the National Astronomy Day event this Saturday night at a local state park, weather permitting. Check with your local community website calendar, library or astronomical society to see what events they might be having to celebrate National Astronomy Day this week. These are fun, family friendly, educational community events.
