Science Festival Stars and Stories

Meet at Sunset Overlook for a relaxing evening of night sky science and stories. Our evening will begin as the sun sets over Three Top and the mountains in our western horizon. This program will include hands-on activities, glow sticks, and an introduction to basic astronomy. Satellite viewing and a review of space science achievements will be a part of our starry evening. Join us for an hour of interesting fun space science and stories at Mt. Jefferson’s scenic overlooks.
