Join us in the Lohman Planetarium for a monumental day in astronomy as we celebrate the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope. Selected by NASA as one of the host facilities around the United States, we will first explore the JWST and how it will revolutionize our understanding of the Universe, view the first images it has taken of the farthest reaches of space, and then watch the live stream of an expert NASA panel discuss the results.
