Kerrville, TX – The last Star Party of the year at Schreiner University’s Loftis Family Science Center will be held on Friday, Nov 10, from 6:30 p.m. to around 10:00 p.m.
The public is invited to come and go anytime during that period and to look through the 16-inch telescope housed in the domed observatory.
There is no charge, and free parking is available adjacent to the center which is located at 2100 East Main Street across from the Schreiner University baseball and softball fields.
Dr. Kim Arvidsson, Associate Professor of Physics, will be on hand to talk about the telescope and point out celestial phenomena, including planets, nebulae, stars, star clusters, and galaxies.
The event will be canceled if inclement weather.
The Loftis Family Science Center was made possible by a gift from the late Dennis Loftis, an accomplished amateur astronomer. In addition to the observatory and telescope, the 3,500-square-foot facility includes a field biology lab and classroom.
