The Portola Valley Nature and Science Committee is once again hosting a Star Party at the Town Center. This is a great opportunity to do guided viewing through telescopes provided by local amateur volunteers. Visitors are encouraged to bring warm clothes and if you need a flashlight please cover it with red cellophane and avoid pointing at people's eyes so they do not lose their dark adaptation. The event will be held between the soccer and softball fields. Stop into the Alder Room for a special storytime, craft and other astronomy related activities. There will also be a workshop for people who own telescopes and would like some help in learning how to more effectively use them for astronomy. Feel free to bring in your own equipment for some hands on help. Children and families are welcome.
