If you're interested in astronomy, thinking about studying science or just love looking at cool photos from outer space, go to Kennewick's library tonight.
Mike Durst, director of the Moore Observatory at Columbia Basin College, will give a presentation at 7 p.m. in the meeting room of the Mid-Columbia Library branch on South Union Street.
There will be lots of great pictures from far-away planets and galaxies.
There also will be information on a new bachelor's degree in astronomy offered by CBC and Heritage University starting this fall.
Never miss a local story.
And Durst will talk about plans for a new observatory in the region and a planetarium at CBC.
The presentation will be fun for kids and families, Durst said, but also will provide useful information for teachers who want to encourage students to get into a science career.
Before becoming the chief stargazer at CBC, Durst worked as a nuclear engineer for decades.
