Elizabethtown Community and Technical College is hosting “An Evening with the Stars” on Oct. 7 – the second in its STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) series of initiatives. The first event was a visit from former astronaut Story Musgrave.
The program will give participants the opportunity to learn about celestial bodies like stars, planets and meteors, and to view them through telescopes provided by the college. The informational session and viewing will be conducted by ECTC science faculty.
The indoor portion of the program will start at 7 p.m. in Room 112 of the James S. Owen Building (formerly the Administration Building). The group will move outside later in the evening to view the night sky from a darkened area on campus. If the weather is bad or the sky is overcast, the event will be 7 p.m. Oct. 9.
At the conclusion of the stargazing event, participants will be invited to gather inside for a wrap-up and light refreshments.
