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.
