The observatory’s telescopes will be used to view a number of celestial objects, including the moon, when visible; the Ring Nebula; globular star clusters M13 and M15; and other double stars and star clusters. A typical Star Party begins with a presentation as visitors ascend the stairs to the observatory, learning about galaxies, the sun and stars along the way. On the roof observation deck visitors are invited to view the skies through telescopes and ask questions. Participants are welcome to arrive and leave as they wish between 8 to 10 p.m. Friday Night Star Parties are free and open to the public. Reservations are not required and groups are encouraged to attend. The entrance to the campus observatory is located outside Brookens Library on the southeast corner of the building. Star Parties may be canceled for cloudy weather. Questions about whether the weather is suitable for viewing should be directed to 217/206-8342 at 7 p.m. on the evening of the Star Party.

  8:00PM n/a Dualing Piano   Back by popular demand! After a very successful performance back in June, the Hoogland Center for the Arts and the Springfield Steinway Piano Gallery are happy to bring back Dual Piano! Springfield musicians Mark Gifford and Damien Kaplan decided to put together a 45-minute program. A new act was created. That night the room was full of friends and family and the rest is history in the making. From Broadway to Classical; swing to jazz; playing and singing, Mark and Damien treat each song with a combination of deep respect, excellent musicianship and just a hint that things may not be exactly what they seem. Improvisation is key to the success of their music. There is a mixture of each player’s love for the music, creativity let loose to inspire and a deep love for surprise and amusement. Comedy runs amuck throughout their programs and no one knows what is going to happen next – including Mark and Damien. The ghosts of such past entertainers as Victor Borge, Liberace and Ferrante & Teicher can be felt rampaging through the hall when Mark and Damien are at the keyboards. Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for seniors and students. Call (217) 523-2787 for tickets, or log onto www.hcfta.org to order online.
