This spring, we are pairing our popular monthly sky tours with astronomy topic talks and full dome planetarium shows. We will take you on a tour of the current skies, highlighting visible planets, deep sky objects, and any upcoming special astronomical events. Once you've had your introductory tour, feel free to ask your astronomy questions! We'll use our state of the art planetarium visualization system to take you to see objects of curiosity and wonder. Each evening will conclude with an immersive planetarium presentation about a different astronomical topic.
The space near Earth is not all empty. There are several asteroid and meteoroid fragments that are being discovered and tracked every day! What are they like and how are they discovered? What is our plan should we discover that one is on a collision course with Earth? What was the closest one in modern history? (Ages 10-adult)
