DescriptionJoin Jacob Plovanic, Montana State University-Bozeman graduate student in Solar Physics, for this special event!

With the Perseid meteor shower as a backdrop, Plvanic will take the audience on a guided tour of Montana's summer night sky. He will point out interesting stars, discuss the background of several constellations, and answer questions from the audience. He will also have a telescope to view deep sky objects.

Jacob Plovanic is an MSU graduate student, studying solar physics with Dr. Charles Kankelborg on the MOSES sounding rocket mission. He is originally from Denton, Montana, where the dark nights allowed him to study the sky and develop his interest in astronomy.

Meet at the Missouri Headwaters State Park picnic area, 1585 Trident Road, Three Forks, MT 59752. The park is located four miles north of Three Forks, just off of interstate 90.

Bring your own chairs. In the case of rain, the star gazing program will be cancelled.
