  • You're Invited to the CMS Star Party

    The January 14th Star Party has been postponed due to the poor weather forecast.  The new date is Monday, February 4th at 5:30 PM.

     

    Join the party!  Bring the whole family!  Volunteers from the San Diego Astronomy Association will bring their amazing telescopes to Challenger's Shuttle Court on Monday, January 14 to view the wonders of the night sky.  They love to share their knowledge and spark the imaginations of young people.  We will begin viewing at 5:30 PM and hope the sky is clear through 7:30 PM.  Please do not bring any flashlights or glow sticks as the light affects the telescopes and people's ability to view the sky. 

    The event will take place weather permitting.  If there is cloud cover, the event will be canceled.

    If you have any questions, please contact science teacher, Mr. Jeff Talsky at jtalsky@sandi.net or Ms. Tamra Winchell at twinchell@sandi.net.
