Can’t get enough of Astronomy Night? You’re in luck! The month of October will feature four consecutive weeks of Astronomy Night Exploration beginning Tuesday, October 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Carnegie Public Library in Charleston. Learn to identify the most popular and easily identifiable constellations and stars and observe the Moon. The emphasis will be on naked eye and binocular observing. A 30 minute indoor discussion will be followed by outdoor observation, weather permitting. Equipment will be discussed but none is provided. Please bring binoculars, flashlight and a blanket to lie on. This program will be open to 25 individuals or families (a family will be counted as one registration.)

Registration opens Monday, October 1 by phone or in person. All ages are welcome, but those under 13 must have a parent with them. Remember to dress for the weather, as the Library will be closed for the last portion of the program. To register or for more information, call the KidSpace at 217-345-1514.
