The St. Charles County Parks Department is once again teaming up with the Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri (ASEM) to offer educational stargazing programs every Friday night at Broemmelsiek Park (1615 Schwede Rd., off Highway DD, 63385) throughout the 2013 year.
Weather permitting, beginning at dusk, join members of ASEM and discover different constellations and stars through complex telescopes at the unique Astronomy Viewing Area on park grounds. These public open houses usually last a couple of hours. Individuals or groups are welcome to participate in these free, educational astronomy programs. Advanced registration is requested for large groups planning to attend.
