Celebrate Christmas and enjoy the night sky! Join GLAS Education and The Big Foot Recreation Department as we celebrate the Christmas Star. This drive-in star party will be a guided tour of the night sky along with some history behind the stunning conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn. Whether the skies are clear or cloudy we will be out there to help you navigate the sky from the comfort of your own car for free. It was over 2000 years ago that archeoastronomers believe the wise men followed the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn to Bethlehem. Now we are lucky enough to see this Christmas Star only days before Christmas! Not only does this conjunction time well for us, it is also very close connection. The last time Saturn and Jupiter came this close together was over 800 years ago. So don’t miss this chance to see the two planets align in the sky! Please register and arrive by 5:15 to get your parking spot and settle in. Bathrooms will be unavailable so please plan accordingly.
