The Logansport Parks & Recreation Department would like to invite the public to participate in an opportunity to view Saturn, Venus, the Moon, and other celestial bodies with the use of telescopes. Local astronomer Forrest Hamilton will provide his expertise at the Star Party at Huston Park on Saturday, September 22nd from 8:00 -11 p.m.. Those interested, will find Forrest with his telescopes near the McNarny Pavilion at Huston Park. Forrest will bring several large telescopes for public viewing and will be on hand to answer any questions.

Those who have a telescope are encouraged to bring it and share with others.  Participants may also wish to consider bringing along a camcorder or digital camera to snap a few pictures of the brighter celestial objects through the large telescopes that will be present.

If the evening is cloudy, the star party will not be held (click for forecast).

Questions can be directed to the Parks Administrator, Janet Fawley at 753-6969 or e-mail at: parksadministrator@cityoflogansport.org
