Cosmosphere offers free stargazing Saturday

Those interested in taking a closer look at the wonders of the night sky can do so Saturday at “Starry Night: Astronomy Fest” in Hutchinson.

Aspiring astronomers will gather beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Hobart-Detter Field in Carey Park for an evening of astronomy education and night sky viewing.

Buying and using a telescope will be the subject of a 7 p.m. presentation. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own telescopes.

Kansas Cosmosphere science educators will take over at 8 p.m. with “Spooky Sky Stories,” and will lead star observations.

Cosmosphere Astronomy Club sponsors the event, which is free to the public. More information is available by calling the Cosmosphere box office at (620) 662-2305.
