LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Stars and 'scopes were the order of the night on Friday, Jan. 18, when the Louisville Astronomical Society hosted a public star party at the E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park.
Several fifth and sixth graders from Chance Middle School crowded around telescopes to view the moon, as well as Jupiter, which was bright in the sky -- even as "Orion the Hunter" looked on.
Ken Alderson, President of the society, spoke to the students and their parents inside the Urban Observatory, which is also located on the park. Alderson lectured on Jupiter, the constellations and the moon.
