Join Astronomer Adrienne Cool and Ron Marzke, of San Francisco State University, for a fascinating nighttime event and slide show, peering through telescopes to spy planets, stars, and nebulae. The moon will be in its first quarter phase, which will be ideal for stargazing.

Stargazing takes place at Sorensen’s Resort in Hope Valley on May 17, 2014, starting at 8pm.

Spy Leo and Gemini in the springtime sky, view the rings of Saturn and its giant moon Titan, and peer at Virgo cluster galaxies a staggering 60 million light-years from Earth. A slide show and deep-sky observing will follow the planet viewing. No experience required; kids of all ages welcome. Be sure and wear warm clothes. Cool and Marzke are astronomers at San Francisco State University.

Cost: $10 donation/$5 kids (proceeds matched by Sorensen’s Resort to benefit Alpine County Schools science programs).

For more information and to book a visit at Sorensen’s Resort, please call (800) 423-9949.
