Tyler, Tx (KETK) — This Saturday at 7 p.m. the Tyler Junior College's Center for Earth and Space Science Education will be holding an "star gazing" party free to the public.
The event will allow students and guests to see an up close view of the constellations through a projection on the dome, as well as through telescopes to be setup outside.
According to the Center's assistant director, Robert Parish, guests will be able to get a better look at the East Texas skies as well saying, " We'll be running inside of our planetary dome here, the East Texas live sky show, which talks about all the constellations and objects you can see here from East Texas this time of year."
The event is held in partnership with the Astronomical Society of East Texas and TJC's Society of Physics.
