The "partygoers" will get a chance to peer through "Big Doug" and other telescopes provided by professional and amateur astrono- mers when the serious viewing begins at 10 p.m. A 30-minute ori- entation - "A Guided Tour of the Night Sky" - will precede the late- night viewing. The star party will begin at 1 p.m. and will feature a variety of astronomy related exhibits, pre- sentations and activities for all ages, also in the day-use area. Af- ternoon presentations will include "Jerry's First Lawof Everything" (2 p.m.), "Hiking the Solar Sys- tem" (3 p.m.) and "Our Spaceship Earth" (4 p.m.). Safe solar viewing opportuni- ties will be featured all day long. Evening activities and presen- tations leading up to the main star gazing event will include: Children's activities fo- cused on rocketry, impact crater formation and Mars: An introduction to the plan: et Mars; and "More Earth's Than You Can Count?" A special 7 p.m. presentation by Jan Dabrowski of Marylhurst University focusing on the search for habitable planets outside our solar system. Crane Prairie Reservoir in Deschutes County and Dexter and Blue River Reservoirs in Lane County have been selected as Oregon's representatives in the "Wanna Go Fishing for Millions" contest sponsored by Cabela's: the Outdoor Channel and fish and wildlife agencies from 19 states. Each of the participating wa- ter bodies have been stocked with eight to 15 trout tagged with a small "spaghetti" tag. The lucky anglers who catch these fish can claim their prizes by entering the tag number and other information on the Cabela's website. The contest started May 5 and continues through July 8. Par- ticipants must register on-line at www.cabelas.com/fishformillions to be eligible for prizes. This year, prizes include Ranger boats. Costa sunglasses. Rapala fishing tackle, Abu Garcia rods and reels, Cabela's gift cards and, of course, up to $2 million in cash for one very lucky angler. Both Blue River and Dexter reservoirs offer plenty of good ac- cess for bank fishermen. All three locations are regular- ly stocked by ODFW and should provide great fishing well into the summer.
