The Village of Homer Glen and Homer Township will host a Spring stargazing event on Friday, April 12, from 8 to 10 at Homer Township’s historic Trantina Farm in Homer Township. The Trantina Farm is located at 15744 W. 151st Street in Homer Township east of the intersection of Gougar Rd. and 151st Street. The event is coordinated by the Homer Glen Environment Committee, the Homer Glen EMA, and Homer Township.
This is the fifth year for the biannual stargazing event at the Trantina Farm. To date over 1000 people have come to the Farm to experience the beauty of the stars at night. On Friday, April 12, the night sky will again come alive thanks to amateur astronomers from the Kankakee Area StarGazers, the Naperville Astronomical Association, and the South West Astronomy Observers Group. They will highlight astronomical beauties such as Andromeda, Pegasus, Capella, Cassiopeia, and even our own Milky Way Galaxy. These groups will have their large telescopes available for free viewing.
Experience Stargazing at the Trantina Farm and continue to celebrate Homer Glen’s recent recognition as the 4th
International Dark Sky Community by spending an evening with the stars under a cool, crisp spring sky! For more information call the Village of Homer Glen at 708-301-0632.
The FALL STARGAZING EVENT will be held on Friday, September 27, 2013 from 8 to 10.
