Event Description

Join us for the Museum’s biggest celestial event of the year as we celebrate all things space in an engaging and interactive environment for the whole family. Learn about the science, exploration, and beauty of space through exciting lectures, shows in the Lohman Planetarium, hands-on activities, and solar observing with telescopes in our front entrance courtyard (weather permitting). Throughout the Museum, there will be displays and activities from MOAS, the GE Volunteers, ERAU’s ERFSEDS Rocket Club, Amateur Astronomy Club, Society of Women Engineers, and Astronomy Professors from the University’s Physical Sciences Department. Stay tuned for our speaker and show lineup in the Lohman Planetarium. We cannot wait to see you for this out-of-this-world event.
