Pomerelle Star Party Friday, August 27th
I really hope we make it this year. I am posting this a week early so that you can make plans also!
Pomerelle's Star Party August 27 - The annual Star Party at Pomerelle Mountain Resort will be on August 27. Special solar telescopes will be set up from 3-5:30pm and kids can make & launch their own water bottle rockets. Night sky talk will be held from 7:30-8:30pm focusing on "Idaho's Summer Skies". Then from 8:30-Midnight, ride the triple chair to the top of the mountain to view the stars through telescopes. This will be a fun opportunity for the whole family. Telescopes and astronomical info is being provided by the CSI Herrett Center and the Magic Valley Astronomical Society. Cost to ride the chairlift is $8 (ages 13+) and $5 (ages 7-12). Children must be under parental supervision at all times. This is a mountain experience, temperatures are considerably cooler. Please dress warmly, wear shoes and bring a jacket. Please fit all flashlights with a red filter to protect night vision. For more information call 673.5599.
