Ask Dr. Universe: Why do we need stars?
April 4, 2017

Dr. UniversePULLMAN, Wash. – If you are anything like me, you like watching the night sky. The stars we see are a lot like our nearest star, the sun. They are just much farther away. That makes stars look like small twinkly things instead of a big, furious thing like our sun.

The Jewett Observatory is inviting visitors to bundle up and stop by to enjoy a night of stars at the observatory this Saturday, October 28, at 8 pm.  At this “Star Party” you can view the cosmos and hopefully catch a glimpse of Mercury and Jupiter in the twilight glare from the sun.  The Observatory will also be open on All Hallow’s Eve (Oct. 31), from 6 to 8 pm. The dome will be open and candy will be available.  The viewings will be cancelled if it is a cloudy night.The Jewett Observatory is located off of Chinook Drive, across from the equine track.
