Astronomy: Life Story of a Star
2-day event: 2/8/2013 - 2/9/2013
Location: Lake Afton Observatory, 20 miles southwest of downtown Wichita at MacArthur Rd. (39th St. S.) and 247th St. W. in Lake Afton County Park. It is immediately north of the lake, just off MacArthur Rd.

The Lake Afton Public Observatory presents "Life Story of a Star." Much like us, stars are born, they live, they grow old and they die. In other words, they have a life cycle. During this program, visitors will use the observatory's 16-inch telescope to take a look at objects in the night sky that are representative of the various stages in a star's life cycle. Visitors will have the opportunity to observe Jupiter, which some people consider a "failed" star, a cluster of newly born stars, a binary star, and a nebula. 'Life Story of a Star" will be presented on the following evenings: January 4-5, 11-12; February 1-2, 8-9; March 1-2, 8-9, 29-30; April 5-6, 12-13 and 26-27.

Admission:
$5 for adults
$3 for ages 6-12
Under six admitted free
Family Rate: Mom, Dad, and all their immediate children - $15
Please note that we are unable to accept credit or debit cards

For more information, call (316) 978-3991 or email robert.henry@wichita.edu.

On Saturday, Feb. 9 at 10 p.m. the astrophotography program will focus on the beautiful Orion nebula.
