In their continuing efforts to squeak every last bit of affection for the First Family from my veins, the White House tonight will host a star gazing party on the front lawn. According to MSNBC,

“A group of professional and amateur astronomers will set up more than 20 telescopes during the presidential star party to mark the International Year of Astronomy (IYA2009), a celebration of the 400th anniversary of famed astronomer Galileo Galilee’s first use of a telescope to observe the night sky. President Obama, his family and a group of local middle-school students are expected to attend.”

The star party will kick off tonight around 8PM EST with a live address on NASA TV from President Obama. According to a White House press office statement, the star party is aimed at highlighting “the President’s commitment to science, engineering, and math education as the foundation of this nation’s global technological and economic leadership and to express his support for astronomy in particular — for its capacity to promote a greater awareness of our place in the universe, expand human knowledge, and inspire the next generation by showing them the beauty and mysteries of the night sky.”

Thankfully, it looks like Mother Nature is going to give the White House a bit of a break: Tonight’s forecast calls for clear skies and a low of 43 degrees. Good luck with that light pollution.
