This Friday night, VPR and the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury are planning to hold our annual Star-Gazing Party. Take your radio outside at 9 o'clock and gaze into the night sky. Meteorologist and Eye on the Sky forecaster Mark Breen will be our guide on this journey through the cosmos. Here's what he has to say about the evening:
"This is your opportunity to gather friends and family outside, take your radio and cell phone, and enjoy an evening of astronomy, with host Jane Lindholm, and Eye on the Skies Mark Breen. Listen in, or call with your questions, as we discuss the August meteor showers, constellations like the Scorpion, finding the planets Saturn and Jupiter, and much more."
You can also send your questions through VPR.net.
Let's hope the skies are clear Friday night (since we are not planning to reschedule it if the skies are cloudy).
