Star Party Scheduled for July 21st at Huston Park

July 18, 2023 at 10:02 a.m.

Logansport Parks & Recreation Department is hosting a Star Party during Space Week!  The Star Party will be held at Huston Park on Friday, July 21st from 8:00 -11:00 p. m.

Come participate in an opportunity to view Mars, Venus, the Moon, and other celestial bodies with the use of telescopes. Those interested will find Professional Astronomer Forrest Hamilton with his telescopes near the McNarny Family Pavilion at Huston Park. Forrest will bring several large telescopes to guide participants as they view the stars and 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 digital camera or cell phone 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. Those interested will be able to find an announcement one way or another on the Logansport Parks & Recreation Facebook page. 

 Questions can be directed to the Parks Administrator, Janet Fawley at 753-6969 or e-mail at .
