Local watch party planned for COSMOS

Posted:

Here at FOX28, we're very excited about this weekend's premiere of COSMOS.

The series, hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson,  is a follow up to Carl Sagan's landmark book and TV series that helped introduce so many to new areas of space and science.

A local group is planning a watch-party for Sunday at Fiddler's Hearth in South Bend.  Friday night, some local star-gazers got out their telescopes to give people at Fiddler's Hearth in South Bend an early look at the stars.  But before dusk, they got a great look at something else too.  "We're looking at the sun - haven't been able to do that too many times this winter. So we're celebrating that as well," said Chuck Bueter with the Michiana Astronomical Society.

Tickets for the event, which benefit AstroCamp at Camp Eberhard, are $10. If you can't make it, remember you can watch it right here on FOX28 Sunday at 9 p.m.
