Star Party


Monday, October 22, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Outside the Olin Arts Center

Star Parties allow you to see distant stars and galaxies with your own eyes, through telescopes provided by Bates Astronomy Club and local astronomy clubs.  These telescopic views give visitors a greater appreciation of the capabilities of artists to capture and convey subtle details in these subjects, as seen in the Starstruck exhibition.

Weather permitting, Star Party scheduled for October 22.
