The Third Annual Stargazer Event took place on Saturday, June 28, 2014 after apostponement of one week due to heavy clouds.
Approximately 50 people were in attendance including many young children who always thoroughly enjoy the evening.
Len Bergdoll, a member of our Historical Committee, began the evening with a presentationon nebulae and galaxies and gave everyone an understanding of things unseen in ourUniverse.
Len's presentation was followed by our own Kevin Witman giving a Power Point presentationof the planets and explaining to everyone what we would be viewing as we moved outside to look at the sky through the three huge telescopes set up in the parking lot!Cosmic Mike Smith, Senior Astronomy Educator from the North Museum in Lancaster alsojoined us. Mike answered questions posed by our astute audience and was available outsideto answer more questions and explain what we were viewing through the telescopes.
Once again the evening was a complete success with everyone having a great time learningabout planets, nebulae and galaxies.
The tentative plan for our Fourth Annual Stargazer Event is to have it in August to take advantage of the Perseid Meteor Shower as well as clearer skies and an earlier sunset! We will post more details on the Township Website as plans materialize.
