Stars on Display
As a part of National Astronomy Day Rockbridge and Hickman High School's Astronomy Club along with the Central Missouri Astronomical Association hosted astronomy events. The events included a star show in the school's planetarium and a telescope viewing at dusk. The day's events were slated to wrap up with a star party featuring a comet, Saturn and Jupiter viewings. The event's organizers said the weather will determine how the program goes.
"We're totally dependent on the weather for this part of the program. Inside it's rain or shine," said Val Germann of the Central Missouri Astronomical Association.
The event also showcased space memorabilia including autographed pictures of Sally Field and members of the Apollo crew.
