Two of the visible planets of the solar system will join Earth’s moon in the night sky in mid-April, and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is inviting sky gazers to watch them at an evening event. Saturn, Mars and the Moon will gather in the evening sky on Saturday April 12, and OMSI, the Rose City Astronomers (RCA) and Vancouver Sidewalk Astronomers are throwing an Star Party that evening, weather permitting. Join us as we gaze at the spring night sky at Rooster Rock State Park, located 22 miles east of Portland on I-84 (east of Sandy River) at exit 25, starting at 8:30 pm. For possible weather cancellation, call (503) 797-4610 on April 12 after 3:00 PM to get the latest information. Parking is $3 per vehicle.
