NASA Ambassador Presenting Solar System Lecture Followed by Star Gazing Party

The night skies of the Uintah Basin have some great views and it’s common to stare into the vastness of space and have many questions. The Utah Field House of Natural History is hosting an event that might bring some answers to such deep questions. It will start with a lecture on the solar system from NASA Ambassador Thomas Quayle. He primarily works for the Clark Planetarium as an Education Program Specialist. He has also presented for over 20 years at local symposiums, national conferences, workshops, and conducting public stargazing functions. After Quayle does his presentation there will be a Star Gazing Party. The program will be on Thursday, April 18th, beginning promptly at 7pm at the Utah Field House, better known as the dinosaur museum. Immediately after Thomas Quayle’s remarks there will be a Star Gazing Party at Steinaker State Park. Telescopes and binoculars will be available but if you have one of your own please bring it. If you desire additional information contact the Utah Field House.
