Astronomer to visit Tri-Community libraries

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In our neck of the woods, the night sky offers an amazing view of the stars. But ever wish you could see more, like Saturn’s rings or the craters on the moon?

The San Manuel Library will offer the chance to see and learn more about the universe around us. The library will host “Look Up to the Stars,” a program for all ages, presented by Kevin Manning, astronomer and former consultant to NASA.

Manning takes participants on a journey into a fascinating world beyond their own with an educational and entertaining program that includes a chance to view objects in the sky with a high-powered, custom-designed telescope with a special day-time filter.

This event is free and open to the public.

The San Manuel Library will host the program on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 2 p.m. “Look Up to the Stars” will also visit the Mammoth Library at noon and the Oracle Library at 4 p.m. Registration for the Summer Reading Program will begin immediately after “Look Up to the Stars.”

For more information, contact the San Manuel Library at 385-4470.
