On Saturday, March 22, OMSI, Rose City Astronomers and Vancouver Sidewalk Astronomers will celebrate the vernal equinox and the beginning of spring with a free Star Party at both Rooster Rock State Park and L.L. "Stub" Stewart State Park starting at 7:30 pm. From beginners to experts of all ages, here's your opportunity to view the stars and other celestial objects up close and personal through telescopes. Viewing highlights include Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn. As the sky darkens we will view deep sky objects including the Orion Nebula, Beehive star cluster and more!
