Starry Nite for Eklund’s Star Party


Young and old gathered at Bob Eklund’s Star Party Saturday and saw the stars. Young and old got to see the Moon, Jupiter, and Mercury. Highlight of the night was the passing of the International Space Station across the sky. For some of the young it was their first time to look into a telescope and see the Moon up close. Eklund, who does the Looking Up column for the Update, has the party every year to share and encourage the love of astronomy.
