Dwarf Planet Tribute
For this month’s public shows, the “little guys” get their moment in the spotlight. Join us to learn about dwarf planets, especially Pluto and Ceres. This summer, we’ll have the first close-up images of the dwarf planet Pluto as the New Horizons spacecraft flies past — we’ll give you a preview of that event. The Dawn spacecraft is currently orbiting around the dwarf planet Ceres — we’ll update you on what astronomers have learned so far. We’ll also give you a brief tour of the current night sky, and give you some tips on summer stargazing. These will be the last public shows of the school year!
Tickets: $2.50. No reservations. Tickets go on sale starting at 6:00 PM each night.
