Super Star Party provides "Out-of-this-world" experience

The Super Star Party is a celebration of astronomical proportions
where stargazers can explore the moon, planets, stars, and solar system. 

Come see a real piece of the moon! 
A lunar sample will be on display for viewing only.  Also, two meteorites will be available to view AND touch!  Both the lunar sample and meteorites are provided by of NASA. 

This year’s theme focuses on the object closest to the earth in our solar system…the moon! What does the full moon mean to you? Are you affected by the full moon? How has the full moon influenced humans for 1000s of years? Explore and understand our closest neighbor through many indoor and outdoor activities.
