Citywide Star Party
The Philadelphia Science Festival kicks off in spectacular fashion, engaging all areas of the city (and suburbs) in the Star Party. Main Line sites include Riverbend, Haverford College, and Swarthmore College (see website for all the locations). Local astronomers will bring telescopes– and their expert knowledge of the cosmos– to more than 20 stargazing sites across the region. Of course, guests are invited to bring their own telescopes as well. And be sure to bring a picnic blanket and make a night of it under the stars!
