SCIence FRIday Night: A Close Look at Mars with David Dundee
Friday, July 6, 2018
7 PM

Members: FREE
Non-members: Regular Admission

LECTURE:  Join Tellus Astronomer David Dundee as he discusses the upcoming astronomical event when Mars will be both closest to the Earth in its orbit and on the directly opposite side of the Earth from the Sun.

FREE PLANETARIUM SHOW: Undiscovered Worlds

Do other planets like Earth exist? Through the discovery of exoplanets—the hundreds of planets that have been found orbiting stars beyond the Sun—we have learned that our solar system is not alone in the universe and have had to redefine our understanding of planets and solar systems. With rapidly improving technology and recent endeavors like the Kepler Telescope, the discovery of exoplanets brings us one step closer to the possibility of finding an Earth-like world. How will this change how we view our place in the universe?

Recommended for ages 6 and up.

Show times are 5:15 PM, 6 PM, 6:45 PM, 7:30 PM, and 8:15 PM.

OBSERVATORY Enjoy solar viewing until 8:30 PM and then as it gets dark, look for Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars.

KIDS ACTIVITY: What does a planetary orbit look like? Visit with our educators and see a demonstration of an Orrery mechanical model of the solar system that illustrates the relative positions and motions of  the planets and moons.
