The 25th annual Nebraska Star party has returned to the Valentine area this week. Mary Lou Kerr and Nick Hammer of Country Fabrics teamed up to surprise the Star Party representatives with a commemorative quilt when they showed up to KVSH Radio for their annual Star Party interview.
The center of activity at NSP will be the large tent on the Observing Field near the entrance to the Snake Campground. Activities under the NSP Tent are: meal service, night time constellation talks, and door prize giveaways. The exception will be Thursday, when activities will be moved to the high school in the town of Valentine.
