FAYETTE TAKO SPONSORING STAR GAZING EVENT ON SEPTEMBER 21st at VOLGA LAKE



Ever looked up at night and wondered about the many stars in the sky? Later this month the Fayette Take A Kid Outdoors (TAKO) group is again sponsoring a special “Star Gazing Night” on the evening of Saturday, September 21st. Running from 7:30pm to 9:15pm, this event is free and open to the public.



Guest presenter Dr. Jeff Butikofer of Upper Iowa University will have his telescope set up on the hilltop towards the stars, on the south end of Volga Lake Park near the horse campground. Dr. Butikofer, will explain their names and locations, plus how to recognize heavenly constellations in the universe. Those attending can gaze the skies for stars, planets, etc., and learn how the locations range with the season. Kids and parents are welcome for a great family event.

In case of cloudy skies or inclement weather, he will move his program to the Baker-Hebron Science building on the Upper Iowa University campus in Fayette. For an update or questions on the event, please contact Fayette TAKO President Leif White at 319-939-1567. Dress warm for the cool night.
