Astronomer to give star party

Search for planets and nebulas in the crystal-clear night skies over Sorensen’s Resort, located at 7,000 feet in the High Sierra just south of Lake Tahoe.

Join NASA astronomer and chief of astrophysics Dr. Jesse Bregman to discover these fantastic celestial bodies and more on an exciting nocturnal tour, equipped with a powerful telescope and Bregman’s ample knowledge. A slide show with recent fantastic images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope will also be offered. Time for questions and answers, cocoa and cookies will follow.

The event will begin at 8 p.m. Nov. 9. The cost is $10, which will be matched by Sorenson’s, to support the Douglas County School science program. For more information contact Sorenson’s Resort at (800) 423-9949 or visit the Web site at
