MEDORA, N.D. (AP) - Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the city of Medora will host an astronomy festival this month.

The western North Dakota park said Wednesday that the second annual astronomy festival will be Sept. 19-21. Park rangers and astronomers will help festival-goers stargaze with telescopes in the evenings.

Hubble Space Telescope scientist and Mercury spacecraft mission planner Mark Kochte will speak, as well as aurora borealis expert Dr. Joe Shaw.

Daytime attendees can build and launch model rockets and attend sun viewing activities. Programming in Dickinson State University’s Discovery Dome will go on throughout the festival.
