‘Far-Far Away Stargazing Party’ Saturday, March 16


Daily Iowegian

CENTERVILLE — The "Far-Far Away Stargazing Party" is Saturday, March 16 at Sharon Bluffs State Park Center 2000 at 7 p.m.

Did you know that Harry Potter’s godfather Sirius and most of his family tree are named from the stars in the constellation Orion? Orion is also one of the easiest to find in the winter sky. Come join us at Center 2000 and find out why constellations have these crazy shapes.

There will be about a 30 to 45 minute presentation about astronomy, which will prepare you once we head outside to find those wonders in the sky.  Hot refreshments will be provided after gazing. This program may be postponed or cancelled due to inclement weather; call the ACCB office or listen to KMGO/KEDB.
