National Astronomy Day 2019 at Tellus Science Museum

NATIONAL ASTRONOMY DAY
Saturday, May 11, 2019
1 – 11 PM

Members: FREE
Non-Members: Regular Admission

CELEBRATE THE JOY OF ASTRONOMY WITH US!

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.

During the afternoon, kids can enjoy various astronomy-themed activities in the Great Hall. The Bentley Planetarium will have extended hours featuring astronomy-specific shows, including We Are Astronomers and To Worlds Beyond.

Head outside when the Sun sets, as we shift our focus to celestial objects in the evening sky, such as Mars, 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.

At 9:30 and 10 PM, Tellus Astronomer David Dundee will lead an outdoor star walk on the Museum grounds that will feature a live tour of the night sky.
