CHS students see the stars

Campbellsville High School students recently took a trip to see the stars.

 

Students participating in the Kentucky Scholars Program visited the MacAdam Student Observatory at the University of Kentucky.

 

Timothy Knauer, director of the MacAdam Student Observatory, met with students to explain how the observatory works and to give them a lesson about the stars. He also ate dinner with the group and took them to the observatory, which is on the roof of one of UK’s parking structures.

 

Students were able to see several galaxies and got an up-close look at the moon.

 

Students attending include seniors Zack Settle, Murphy Lamb, Laura Lamb, Caroline McMahan, Vera Brown, Blair Lamb, Ben Rafferty, Ricky Smith-Cecil and Dalton Ballentine.

 

CHS teacher Cheryl Dicken and Campbellsville Independent Schools Instructional Supervisor Kent Settle accompanied the students.
