This fall, 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.
It didn’t end with Neil Armstrong’s famous words about small steps and giant leaps. 5 more Apollo missions landed on the moon, each with its own remarkable achievements and discoveries. Come and learn about Charles "Pete" Conrad, Richard Gordon, and Alan Bean’s mission to our nearest neighbor in space and what was learned. [This is part of an ongoing series. Programs over the coming months will be celebrating the achievements of each of the Apollo missions 50 years ago.] (Ages 10-adult)
