Canyon Country Campus to Throw Star Party

| Entertainment | October 10, 2019

On Friday, October 25th, the fall 2019 Star Party at the College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus will be doubly significant as it coincides with the college’s 50th anniversary and Apollo 11’s historic moon landing.

To that effect, COC professors Dr. Erik Altenbernd and David Michaels will present the talk “It’s Rocket Science: The 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing & the History of the Space Race!”

“We are very excited to welcome new and returning attendees to our 20th Star Party,” said Ryan Theule, vice president of the Canyon Country campus. “Please join us for a fascinating talk about the Apollo missions and rocket science under the stars.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, will include a variety of interactive displays and activities presented by college clubs and organizations.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to gaze at the stars through the multiple telescopes set up by local astronomy groups throughout the evening.

The event will also feature a classroom-size planetarium, which will allow attendees to learn more about astronomy through projected images of the night sky

“Our star parties allow the local community to interact with our students, faculty and staff in a fun and educational setting, and in this case, to celebrate 50 years in space along with the college’s 50th anniversary,” said Anthony Michaelides, dean of campus services and operations at the Canyon Country campus.

The fall 2019 Star Party will be held from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, October 25th, at the Carl A. Rasmussen Amphitheater located on the Canyon Country campus.

Food and beverages will also be available for purchase on site.
