An evening of star gazing presented at winery
MAPLE PARK – Dean Martin had it right when he crooned “That’s Amore” – wine, stars and Italian food are a magical combination. Northern Illinois University STEM Outreach will present “Star Gazing at the Winery” from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11 at Acquaviva Winery, on Route 38 in rural Maple Park.
Speakers include NASA Ambassador Joel Knapper, NIU Associate Professor of Plate Tectonics, Geodynamics and Planetary Geology Paul Stoddard, and physicist Matthew Wiesner, manager of NIU’s observatory.
Throughout the evening, attendees should be able to view the Perseid meteor shower. These fast, bright meteors radiate from the Perseus constellation and appear every August. Depending on weather conditions, the meteors should be visible with the naked eye.
