Mobile Earth + Space Observatory Star Party In-Person
Imagine research-grade telescopes, science museum exhibits and astronomer educators at the ready so you and your community can gaze at the stars. Astronomers guide visitors in the basics of astronomy and the use of telescopes as participants explore the night sky and learn how to find stars, planets and other celestial objects.
Hot cocoa and a night sky craft will be provided.

Experience the Mobile Earth + Space Observatory including the infrared camera, the science atrium and the projection of celestial images in real-time. The best part is the excitement of the crowd as they discover the rings of Saturn, moons of Jupiter, or craters of the Moon for the first time!
