Astronomy for Everyone

» Export this event to your personal calendar.
Date: 08/19/2017
Time: 8:00 p.m. To 11:00 p.m.
Location: Historic Area
Description: Our evening of space exploration begins with our half-hour "Junior Astronomer" program, for children ages 5-12, led by volunteer Ambassadors of NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab. Immediately following the children's program, join the Ambassadors for a half-hour multimedia presentation on the latest in the United States' space research. Then, get yourselves oriented to the celestial skies with a 15-20 minute 'sky tour' by a volunteer Star Guide.

For the remainder of the program take advantage of Sky Meadows' dark skies by looking at deep space objects through telescopes provided by volunteers. Have your own telescope? Feel free to bring your scope or binoculars for your own sky exploration.

Note: Entrance gates close one hour after program start time. In the event of rain or clouds, only the "Junior Astronomer" and multimedia presentations will be provided. Parking for this program is $5.00 per vehicle.
