College of the Canyons Canyon Country Campus to Hold Star Party on April 27

As a staff scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Dr. Vanessa Bailey’s job is to capture high-contrast images of exoplanets, which are planets that orbit stars outside of the solar system. On Friday, April 27, Dr. Bailey will speak about her exciting discoveries and line of work at the spring 2018 Star Party at the College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus.

“We are very excited to hear Dr. Bailey speak about this interesting topic,” said Ryan Theule, vice president of the Canyon Country campus. “Our biannual Star Party has become a much-anticipated tradition in our community. We look forward to welcoming new and returning attendees for an educational and memorable night under the stars.”

Dr. Bailey’s presentation “De-twinkling the Stars to Study Exoplanetary Systems” will offer attendees an insightful look into exoplanet research and what it can teach us about our own planet.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will include a variety of interactive displays and activities presented by college clubs and organizations.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to gaze at the stars through the multiple telescopes set up by local astronomy groups throughout the evening.

“Attendees will also have the opportunity to enter our portable planetarium for an exciting visual experience,” said Anthony Michaelides, dean at the Canyon Country campus. “Our Star Party has something for family members of all ages to enjoy and discover.”

The spring 2018 Star Party will be held from 7:30 to 10 p.m. on Friday, April 27, at the Canyon Country campus.

Food and beverages will also be available for purchase on site.
