Free Star Party at Science MuseumCome out to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History this Saturday, Aug. 6 for a free Star Party. These fun, educational events teach parents and kids alike the basics of astronomy and stargazing. Representatives from the Museum’s Noble Planetarium and the Fort Worth Astronomical Society will be on-hand beginning at dusk to answer questions and assist visitors in seeing the unique asteroid Vesta, along with the moon, Saturn and other special objects through large telescopes in the night sky. Prime Asteroid viewing will be from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., but Vesta will be visible throughout the night.

To attend the Star Party, meet in the museum’s parking lot at the corner of Montgomery and Harley streets in Fort Worth.

If you’re really interested in learning more about Vesta, bring the family to the museum earlier Saturday for Vesta Fiesta, a special event in honor of NASA’s orbiting around the asteroid. You can enjoy hands-on space-related activities in Innovation Studios and short talks in the Planetarium lobby throughout the day. Regular admission to the museum still applies for this event.
