Learn about the Webb Space Telescope--the most powerful to be placed in orbit--and more interesting facts about space, as we take a deep look into the universe.

Join us for a Public Star Party! Members of the Fox Valley Astronomical Society will present a fascinating 30-40 minute program, followed by observing if the sky is clear. A selection of telescopes will be available and group members will be happy to show you a variety of objects in the night sky. If you have a telescope and need help learning how to use it, feel free to bring it along--members are glad to help you in any way they can.
