Apps Under the Stars

The Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County presents, “Apps Under the Stars” at Ariel-Foundation Park on Saturday, February 11, 6:00-8:00 pm.

Participants will meet at the Urton Clock House at Ariel-Foundation Park. Come prepared to see how you can use your smartphones or tablets to navigate the night sky, track satellites, and more. There will be a brief presentation (and giveaway!) with light refreshments followed by time to stargaze outside.

People who attend should dress warmly, but also plan to be inside for a time. The presentation will take about 20 minutes, guests will have another 20-30 minutes to download new apps and ask questions.

On February 11th there is also supposed to be a penumbral lunar eclipse. We’re hoping the weather will cooperate. If anyone has questions,
please contact Amber Hawkins at the main library at ahawkins@knox.net  or call 740-392-BOOK ext. 238.
