Lake Afton Public Observatory is sponsoring a night of American Indian storytelling.

The evening around a campfire begins at 8 p.m. on Oct. 13 in the field to the west of the Observatory building. Jan Brooks, of the Ojibwa tribe, is the host for the night. Stories will highlight the constellations, stars and legends unique to American Indian culture.

Visitors are asked to bring folding chairs or blankets to sit on. There is no charge for the event, but the Observatory will be open and regular admission charges will apply.

From now through Dec. 22, the observatory is open to the public each Friday and Saturday night from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Cost is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 6 to 12. Children under 6 are admitted free. Family rate is $15.

The observatory is 20 miles southwest of downtown Wichita, on MacArthur at 247th Street West in Lake Afton Park.
