Starlight Festival coming to Big Bear

The 2014 StarLight Festival will be held at the Northwoods Resort & Conference Center May 24 and 25.

Located at 40650 Village Drive, Big Bear Lake, Calif., the event will be open 10 a.m.-11 p.m. both days.

The free event features a wide array of speakers sharing their insights on space exploration, robots, the Sun and more in the first floor ballroom of the resort.

Personnel from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory will be on hand in the upstairs conference center with multiple exhibit pieces, including Moon rocks, models of spacecraft, aerogel and satellites.

Additionally, Astronomers Without Borders will introduce attendees to astronomy around the globe with a special media presentation.

Outdoors you will find the STEM Zone – a tent dedicated to students and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. Kids of all ages can build their own Saturn and planetary lander, or learn about impact cratering and meteorites vs meteorwrongs.

Surrounding the STEM Zone will be a plethora of tents with exhibitors from the world of science & astronomy.  See how a telescope is made, and then look through them yourself both day and night to see the Sun in all its glory, or beautiful deep sky objects like the giant globular star cluster, M13, or our sister galaxy, Andromeda.

Big Bear Solar Observatory, home to the world’s largest aperture and highest resolution solar telescope, will be open for free tours.

Once evening falls, all of our telescopes will be turned to the heavens. Get great views of Saturn, Mars, Jupiter and even a comet or two.
