Sip and gaze at stars during OMSI event at vineyard

Do stars sparkle more when paired with wines? Are they best observed with a bit of bubbly or a pinot?

You can explore these questions when the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry partners with Anne Amie Vineyards July 22, 2017, for “Planets and Pinot,” a stargazing event.

OMSI will have several of their most powerful mobile telescopes set up at the winery for guests to gaze through, and Anne Amie will pour some of its wines. Woodfired pizzas also will be available for purchase from Dough on the Go.

Anne Amie is located in Carlton, and event admission is free.

For more information, see the event’s Facebook page.

Editor’s note: No, the Science In Portland blog is not entirely dead. Jim and I are still around but often occupied elsewhere. If you know of an upcoming event or would like to help with writing for the blog, let us know. It’s an all-volunteer show, so no fat paychecks or royalties for any of us.
