Bring your curiosity about things in the universe to the Museum for an afternoon with Phil Groce, a planetarium design consultant, writer, and President of Helping Planetariums Succeed. Groce will present two unique planetarium features at 2 and 4 pm. The 2:00 show will be “The Upcoming Sky Extravaganza” featuring sky events coming in 2018. At 4:00 Groce will focus on the importance of astronomy and its role in our everyday lives in “Death By Universe and Other Happy Thoughts of a Sky Observer.” From 1:00 – 4:00 pm during a telescope clinic you can bring your telescope to Museum staff for advice on its care and use. Demonstrations and hands-on activities for children will be on-going throughout the afternoon. Weather permitting there will be an opportunity for observing the Sun with special solar telescopes. Astronomy-related door prizes will also be awarded during the afternoon.
