The National Park Service, in partnership with the St. Louis Astronomical Society, invites visitors of all ages for a different take on astronomy with Gateway to the Stars, a free stargazing series under the Gateway Arch.  Children ages 5 through 12 are invited to Junior Ranger Night Explorer Workshop, led by Michael Malolepszy of the St. Louis Astronomical Society. After a special program in the Odyssey Theater inside the Arch Visitor Center, free telescope viewing will follow on the Arch grounds, weather permitting. Kids will earn a special Junior Ranger patch upon successful completion of the evening’s events. Call 314-655-1750, ext. 472 to check weather conditions the afternoon of the program.
