Canyon Country Campus to Throw Star Party May 3
The semiannual spring Star Party is touching down on Friday, May 3 at the College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus with students and community members of all ages invited to take a peek into our solar system.
The topic in focus for the evening will be planets that revolve around stars, known as exoplanets. As a part of the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, Dr. Jessie Christiansen searches galaxies and planets for conditions similar to Earth. Her presentation, “On the Road to a Billion Planets,” will carry attendees on an interstellar journey.
In addition to the fascinating presentation, the event will include interactive demonstrations from college faculty and students, activity tables, and a portable planetarium. Multiple telescopes will also be set up by local astronomy groups and students, allowing attendees to get a closer look at the night sky.
“We are once again looking forward to hosting this popular community event at the Canyon Country campus,” said Anthony Michaelides, dean at the Canyon Country campus. “Our Star Parties allow our students, faculty and staff to showcase the sciences in a variety of ways, and the timing couldn’t be better, with our new science building currently under construction and expected to serve students next year.”
The spring 2019 Star Party will take place from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Friday, May 3 at the Canyon Country campus’ Carl A. Rasmussen Amphitheater. The Canyon Country campus is located at 17200 Sierra Highway.
This event is free and open to the public. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase on site. Families will not want to miss this stellar event.
