Community Observatory’s FREE Birthday Celebration – Saturday, August 13

The Community Observatory is turning 10 years old, and you’re invited to a FREE overnight party on Saturday, August 13, starting at 7 p.m. and ending on Sunday at 7 a.m.! Families and children will enjoy the Perseid meteor shower, partake in Milky Way Galaxy telescope viewing, have fun playing games, make birthday cards, crowns, and more. Jamba Juice will sell refreshments between 7 and 9 p.m., with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Observatory.

A ceremonial cake cutting will take place at 7:30 p.m. Join us and meet some of the Rotary Club members who helped build the Community Observatory more than 10 years ago. You won’t want to miss the stargazing event of the year!
