ARGENTA, Ill. (WCIA) — Enjoy seeing the night sky as long as the skies are clear at the 38th Annual Astronomy Jamboree on Saturday.

The free event takes place at the Friends Creek Conservation area from 8-10 p.m.

“With the Conservation District’s telescope, you can make out the rings of Saturn and the Red Spot on Jupiter,” said Director of Program Services, Alysia Callison. “It’s amazing to take these tiny, abstract spots of light in the sky and see them from a new perspective, and we can’t wait to show people some of the marvels of space for the 38th year in a row.”

Organizers said people can come to enjoy old-time and bluegrass music by The Red Wheelbarrows from 8-8:45 p.m. and then wait for the stars to show. Through the telescopes, people should be able to see Jupiter and Saturn as well as the Moon.

People are welcome to bring their own telescope said. Pre-registration was required for this event. There will be children’s crafts, prizes, hotdogs, and s’mores for roasting.
