More than 160 eager students and family members gathered next to the baseball field at McCollum High School for the first ever Communities in Schools of San Antonio (CIS) star gazing party.

 Astronomers from the San Antonio Astronomical Association volunteered their time and equipment to inspire and educate Launchpad and Space Club students from Terrell Wells, Kingsborough and McCollum. The students got a close-up look at Venus, Mars and several stars.

Festivities included reading star charts, using astronomy iPad apps, making glow stick creations and discussion on the wonders of astronomy.

The next Communities in Schools (CIS) Star Party will be held at Harlandale High School on May 4.
