The Challenger Learning Center will host a star festival on Saturday

The Friday event will be held at the center’s Kenyan location and does not require RSVP.

The Challenger Learning Center invites you to this Saturday’s party under the stars. The center is co-hosting a “Star Festival” in partnership with the Southern Alaska Astronomical Society and solar system ambassadors from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

The event on Saturday will be held at the center’s Kenya location and does not require RSVP. The center said all ages are invited to participate in the event, but young people should be accompanied by adults.

“If you or your child loves heaven, you don’t want to miss this night!” the center’s event sheet says.

Among other things, the event will see stars through telescopes by the Anchorage Museum, the Planetarium and the University of Alaska Visualization Theater and the Challenger Learning Center. Hot drinks and other star-related events will also be available, as well as astronomers from the above-mentioned organizations and institutions.

The Southern Alaska Astronomical Society is a group of amateur astronomers from the Anchorage and Mat-Su valleys. More information about Friday’s event can be found on the Challenger Learning Center’s Facebook page and website.

The event will be held Saturday from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Alaska Challenger Learning Center, located at 9711 Kenai Spur Hwy. in Kenai.
