Hey folks! Just wanted to let everyone know that Astronomy Day is coming up this weekend! May 11 is Astronomy Day, and of course, we will be hosting our monthly Stargazing and Laser Light Night to celebrate.
Besides the usual night sky viewing with telescopes (weather permitting) beginning at 8:30pm, live sky show in the planetarium at 7:30pm (Virginia Skies), and laser shows throughout the evening afterwards, we’re going to have some cool activities in our planetarium lobby starting at 7pm. Come on out and enjoy! Don’t forget that the cafe will be open from 7 – 11:30pm as well. Stargazing will be FREE, as always, while planetarium programs and laser shows are $6 each, or see any 2 shows on the same night for $10. Members always receive half off!
Start the Mother’s Day fun a little early and bring Mom out to the planetarium on Saturday night. It’s always a great time, no matter what the weather. See ya there!
