PLAN ON A FULL DAY AND NIGHT OF ASTRONOMY FUN!

CELEBRATE THE JOY OF ASTRONOMY with us during National Astronomy Day! The Museum opens at 10 AM, and the stargazing begins at 1 PM when we open the Observatory to view the Sun. We will be looking for sunspots and prominences through our telescope.

Tellus-Logo_Stars2016RGB1-300x206Inside, you will have a chance to meet some future scientists as they present their winning projects from the 2016 Georgia Science and Engineering Fair. Also, enjoy special astronomy lectures about the Youth Colorful Cosmos Program, the history of space exploration, and the OSIRIS-Rex mission.
When the Sun sets, head outside as we shift our focus to other celestial objects in the evening sky, such as Jupiter, double star Gamma Leo, the Moon, and the Globular Cluster in Hercules. Feel free to bring your own telescope to set up on the lawn and get some tips from members of the Atlanta Astronomy Club. Various astronomy-themed children’s activities will be available during the evening. At 9 and 9:30 PM, Tellus astronomer David Dundee will lead and outdoor star walk on the Museum grounds that will feature a live tour of the night sky (meet in the Lobby).
