LAST STAR PARTY THIS SATURDAY

Sep 13, 2010

Evergreen Museum

By Amy Quick, Director of Membership

This Saturday is our last Star Party of the season, and it’s usually one of our most popular ones! This particular partywill focus on its namesake – Stars. Written below are some tidbits of what you’ll hear about on Saturday at the Museum:

Most stars are between 1 billion and 10 billion years old. Some stars may even be close to 13.7 billion years old—the observed age of the universe. The oldest star discovered, HE 1523-0901, is an estimated 13.2 billion years old. A star is a massive, luminous ball of plasma that is held together by gravity. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun, which is the source of most of the energy and light on Earth. Other stars are visible in the night sky, when they are not outshone by the Sun. A star produces a tremendous amount of light and other forms of energy. The stars look like twinkling points of light – except for the sun.

Here is the schedule for the Sept. 18th Star Party:

Presentation – Stars 5:30 p.m. Evergreen Space Museum Presented By: Tony Leavitt

For Kids – Constellation In A Can 6:00 p.m. Evergreen Space Museum

Star Lab – Night Sky Orientation 6:30 p.m. Evergreen Space Museum

 Hubble 3D showing – 7:30 p.m. Evergreen IMAX Theater

Vividly captured, Hubble 3D recounts the amazing journey of the most important scientific instrument since Galileo’s original telescope and the greatest success in space since the Moon Landing — the Hubble Space Telescope. Audiences will accompany the space walking astronauts as they attempt some of the most difficult tasks ever undertaken in NASA’s history, and will experience up close the awesome power of the launches, the heartbreaking setbacks, and the dramatic rescues of this most powerful story.

Star Gazing will occur in the parking lot behind the Space Museum when night falls – feel free to bring your lawn chairs, telescopes, or binoculars. Local astronomy groups will be on hand with their telescopes to help you find the wonders of the night sky.

Date: September 21, 2012Sales Person: Pat/DarceeLocation: Kirkland WASales I thought that the srcviee I received from Bayside as a whole was exceptional, but specifically Pay took care of me better than other past dealers. Pat & Darcee worked with me politely, quickly, & efficiently to put me in the truck I wanted. I would definitely buy from Bayside again.

I would recommend anyone to visit this place of business. This was my first visit and saw the sign driving down the road. http://uhsusl.com [url=http://hxltgcffti.com]hxltgcffti[/url] [link=http://crclzbed.com]crclzbed[/link]

Este zote es un trepa de libro que ha caído en su propia prpteeoncia. Mal preparado y bien relacionado tiene ese punto ingenuo y chulesco que asegura que tanto él como los que lo han nombrado harán el ridículo de forma inminente.

Thanks for the ideas you are giving on this site. Another thing I would like to say is always that getting hold of duplicates of your credit file in order to inspect accuracy of each detail would be the first action you have to perform in credit score imemvoerpnt. You are looking to freshen your credit reports from damaging details problems that wreck your credit score. http://xnutfftndi.com [url=http://zpweuh.com]zpweuh[/url] [link=http://bmwbnyip.com]bmwbnyip[/link]
