See the stars at the Mattapoisett Library

Jan 08

Families are invited to the Mattapoisett Library on Tuesday, January 16, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. to learn how to use the library's new Orion StarBlast Telescope.

The Friends of the Mattapoisett Library purchased the telescope. Volunteer experts from the Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. will present a brief slide show on the operation of the telescope. Afterwards, families will go outside to see the stars and planets.

The telescope will be available for check-out with an adult library card.

Door prizes will be available for children. The library notes that participants should dress warmly for outdoor viewing. Outdoor viewing is weather permitting.

Registration is not required but appreciated. Call 508-758-4171 to register.
