SESSER - Rend Lake College encourages families and scout troops to make plans to attend Stargazing, Friday, October 8 from 7-9pm.
RLC Instructor, Greg Hollmann, will have participants gazing through the RLC telescope, searching for Pleiades Cluster, the majestic rings of Saturn and Orion's Nebula. Those attending are encouraged to dress for the weather as this event is scheduled for evening outdoors.
The instructor will point out additional bright stars and constellations as he captures the attention with stories of ancient mythology and modern science as it related to the heavens. If bad weather threatens, the instructor will offer an alternate program indoors.
Stargazing will be held on Friday, October 8 from 7-9pm at the Sesser Community Building. The registration fee is $3. Special $1 per person rate will apply for all Boy and Girl Scout Troops. Participants 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
