Take a guided tour of the stars at Alys Beach

Friday,  January 9
6-8 p.m.

Meet at Fonville Press

Alan Knothe will be the guide for an up close and personal tour of the heavens, starting with a lecture on the cycle of a star which will cover how the stars are formed, the stages they go through and what happens after they burn out. This will also cover black holes. Stargazing will follow the hour long lecture.

The star-gazing tour will begin at Fonville Press, a coffee shop, newsstand and wine bar located in Alys Beach directly on Scenic 30A. Knothe’s initial presentation at Fonville Press will last about an hour.
