Make the stars your old friends as we watch the great celestial show in the skies over School District 197. We’ll have giant telescopes aimed at Jupiter, Saturn, star clusters, galaxies, and more. Live video telescopes will also be available. Get to know constellations like The Big Bear, Cygnus the Swan, Pegasus the Winged Horse, and others. Great constellation mythological stories will also be featured! You’re invited to bring lawn chairs to make yourself comfy.
