Marvel at the autumn night sky. The two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter, will appear to almost touch each other in the western sky around sunset, creating a brilliant spectacle. Beautifully ringed Saturn and the fall constellations will also be in view. Weather permitting, join the planetarium staff in the MOAS courtyard as we use our telescopes and laser pointers to guide you through this wondrous evening. Guests are welcome to bring their own chairs, telescopes/binoculars, and curiosities about the universe.
A special presentation of "The Sky Tonight" will take place in the Lohman Planetarium at 6:30 p.m. (limited seating).
"The Sky Tonight" show is free for members, $5.00 for adults, and $3.00 for children.
The outdoor portion of the event is free to the public.
