Photo by Susan Holland Van Masterson, events coordinator for NWA Space in Fayetteville, was on hand at the Gravette Public Library's star party Friday, Nov. 17, to explain the workings of the telescopes his group provided. Here he prepares to show Al Blair, Maria Pinto and her children Dina Teed and Paul Teed (partially hidden) how to use the finder scope he has set up. Dina holds one of the evening star maps provided to star party guests.
Gravette Public Library hosted a "Star Party" Friday, Nov. 17, on Main Street in Gravette. Telescopes were set up on the north side of Main, just across the street from the library, and guests were able to use them to view the night sky. The Sugar Creek Astronomical Society and NWA Space were cosponsors of the event.
