Stargazers are invited to the Lewis and Clark Confluence Tower in Hartford for a unique event on Friday evening. Astonishing Astronomy From the Tower will give those in attendance a chance to observe the night sky and learn more about the stars and planets in the galaxy from an expert in the field. 

Stephanie Tate, the Marketing and Sales Coordinator with the Alton Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau says the “show” really starts with the sunset.
