DURHAM, N.H.—NASA astronaut and University of New Hampshire alumnus Lee Morin will be among the participants at UNH's first New England Fall Astronomy Festival.

The festival, which is being held Friday and Saturday at the UNH Observatory in Durham, includes sky-watching with telescopes, talks by amateur astronomers and professional scientists, rocket launches and hands-on activities for kids.

Morin, a naval flight surgeon who took part in the 13th space mission of the shuttle Atlantis in 2002, will deliver a keynote address Saturday. He graduated from UNH in 1974.
