Live Oak Family Star Gazing - February 13

Join us for Star Gazing at Live Oak on the blacktop, February 13, 6:30-8:30pm. This event is free and open to our Live Oak students and families. Bring some warm blankets, picnic dinner, and get ready to star gaze. View the constellations through telescopes, participate in a Q&A session with experienced docents. If your family has a telescope, we encourage you to bring it with you. Please label it with your name. Please note: Quality of sky viewing is dependent on clear skies.

About The Docents:
Joining us for the evening is Raymond Howard, Outreach Coordinator from the East Bay Astronomical Society. He will give a brief talk about the sky and what we will be seeing. Philip Saad, who studies black holes, and Alexander Saad, who has worked on building rockets for an aerospace company, will also share their knowledge about the universe with our community.

This is NOT a drop off event. Parents must accompany their children at all times. This event is weather dependent.
This event is sponsored by our Live Oak Science Specialists, Live Oak PTA, and the Live Oak Education Fund.
