Star gazing event held at Paradise on Mount Rainier this Friday

Star gazers should head up to Mount Rainier National Park at Paradise for the Star Party and Night Skies Program 9 p.m. Friday, July 22.

Families and individuals of all ages are invited to meet in the lobby of the Paradise Inn with a short presentation about the National Park Service “Night Skies” program.

At 9:45 p.m. there will be outdoor star gazing in front of the Paradise Jackson Visitor Center with Tacoma Astronomical Society volunteers and their telescopes. Astronomy Society volunteers will also assist with special children’s astronomy activities. All ages will be able to make astronomy devices called “star finders.”

If weather makes star gazing difficult, the party will move inside the Paradise Inn lobby for star finder making and a 45-minute film about the Milky Way galaxy.

For details, call 360-569-2211, extension 6577 or visit the Tacoma Astronomy Society website.
