The University of Arizona Astronomy Club, astronomy graduate students and postdocs are hosting an astronomy family fun night at Himmel Park Public Library, 1035 N. Treat Ave. at 6 p.m. tomorrow.

Take the kids to learn a few things about space, look through a telescope and do crafts.

There will be a presentation on NEOs (near earth objects) that come from the far reaches of space to our planet. You'll learn about asteroids, meteors and comets. After the presentation, you'll get the chance to view Venus, galaxies, star clusters and constellations during the guided telescope viewing.

The event is free. Call 594-5305 for more information.
