The biggest and brightest stars are coming to San Diego and anyone can come mingle!

Orion’s belt, anyone? No, Johnny Depp is not coming out of seclusion, sorry. But MiraCosta College is hosting a party worthy of the stars Friday at 7:30 p.m.

The college will unveil spectacular mural-sized images from NASA’s Great Observatories in honor of the International Year of Astronomy in its gym. Stargazing visitors will get to take in breathtaking images captured by the Hubble and Spitzer Space telescopes, as well as the Chandra X-ray Observatory.

Dr. Michelle Thaller of the Spitzer Science Center will also speak and conduct a question and answer session.
