Now here’s something cool to do with the family on Saturday night. Spend an evening at Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain Valley gazing at the stars for OC Parks’ “Mars and Stars” series, a collaboration between NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and OC Astronomers. The free science series focuses on astronomy.
This Saturday’s event will feature an interactive presentation about the Mars Science Laboratory Mission, featuring Dr. Vasavada the Deputy Project Scientist on this mission, children’s crafts, storytime with OC Public Libraries, and stargazing with OC Astronomers.
Pack a picnic and arrive early to enjoy the sunset at 6:59pm.
