Feb. 10Space Explorers at Shaver’s Creek – Do you ever gaze into the night sky and wonder about the mysteries of the universe? What is our place within the solar system and the Milky Way galaxy? What planets exist beyond Earth? Families and other folks are welcome to join us at Shaver’s Creek for an evening of space exploration. Astronomer Jason Young, a Penn State graduate student and an expert on the night sky, will be at Shaver’s Creek with his telescope on Friday, February 10 from 5 to 7 pm. Come explore the stars, make your own comet, and learn about the moon and the sun. Suggested for ages 8 and up. Pack yourself in winter layers– we will be stargazing and working outside! If the night is cloudy, the fun continues inside with the indoor planetarium. Hope to see you there!  For more information and to register for this program, please call Shaver’s Creek at 814-863-2000 or email ShaversCreek@outreach.psu.edu. This program is $5 for non-members and free for members.
