The Community Observatory is turning 10 years old, and you’re invited to a FREE overnight party on Saturday, August 13, starting at 7 p.m. and ending on Sunday at 7 a.m.! Families and children will enjoy the Perseid meteor shower, partake in Milky Way Galaxy telescope viewing, have fun playing games, make birthday cards, crowns and more. Jamba Juice will sell refreshments between 7 and 9 p.m., with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Observatory.
