Fresno has many hidden gems. One of them is tucked away on Winery Avenue not far from the Fresno Airport. It's called The Discovery Center. It's here on Friday nights during June, July and August  that a local professor leads what he calls Star Parties

Around 8 p.m.  every Friday Professor Garett Weimer invites the public to use his telescopes and to listen to a short lecture about what's in site in the night sky.  But The Discovery Center offers more than just star parties. They have museum, offer summer workshops and more. 

For more information on The Discovery Center KVPR's Joe Moore interviewed the organizations director, Debbie Milla, on Valley Edition.
