Weekly Freebie: Astronomy Open House

Each week, Jackalope Ranch brings you a free event, workshop, or you-name-it happening in Phoenix. Because sometimes the best things in life really are free. This week's freebie: Astronomy Open House.

Every so often the stars and planets align to bring us free events -- case and point, the ASU Astronomy Open House, where you'll get a close up look at the moon, Jupiter, and probably a few other celestial celebrities.
