Star Party July 15th

Star Party
Wednesday, July 15

Make your own telescope at 6:30pm at Charles Santore Library (932 S 7th St)
Check out the stars at 8:00pm in Hawthorne Park (12th and Catharine)

This fun and educational (and free) event is part of the City Skies program at the Franklin Institute and is being hosted by the Charles Santore Library.  The City Skies program seeks to point out that the night sky is available to everyone, everywhere without special equipment. This project prepares neighborhood and community leaders in Philadelphia to use simple but effective observation tools and NASAs educational web content to help their inner-city Philadelphia neighbors learn about space science and technology—and about their city and themselves—by knowledgeably exploring the sky.

This event is free and open to the public and is intended for ages 8 and up.

For more information call the librarian at 215-686-1766.
