Astronomy: How Far is Far?
2-day event: 10/24/2014 - 10/25/2014
Location: Lake Afton Observatory.The observatory is located about 20 miles southwest of downtown Wichita on MacArthur Road at 247th Street West in Lake Afton County Park. It is immediately north of the lake, just off MacArthur Road. Lake Afton can be reached by any of the following routes: west from Wichita on U.S. 54 to the Lake Afton sign at Viola Road three miles past Goddard, then three miles south and one mile east; or southwest on K-42, seven miles to Schulte and nine miles west on MacArthur.

Planets and stars are only a bit more than a stone's throw away, right? During this program we will observe a gas giant planet, a multiple star, a cluster of stars, a nebule and a nearby galaxy as we discuss just how far away they really are and how we determine vast distances in space. This program will run Oct. 10-11, 17-18, 24-25, Nov. 14-15, 21-22, Dec. 12-13, 19-20.

Admission is just $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 6-12; children under 6 are admitted free. There is also a special family rate where two parents and their immediate minor children or grandchildren get in for just $15.
For more information, call (316) 978-7927.
