Join the Fort Hays State University Astronomy Club at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center from 8-10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, for an evening of night sky observations and astronomical activities. 

Led by Dr. Jack Maseberg, associate professor of physics, and Dr. Paul Adams, dean of the College of Education, the Astronomy Club will bring telescopes to KWEC and educate participants about different cosmic objects. 

That night, Saturn, Jupiter, and Messier Galaxy Objects will be in view. Messier Objects include nebulae, globular and open clusters, and galaxies discovered by Charles Messier in the 1770s as he was searching for comets. 

KWEC will also provide refreshments, a galaxy craft and other activities inside the center. The Wetlands Center is located at 592 NE K-156, Great Bend. For more information call 877-243-9268.
