Something’s coming…

…come on in, meet a guy, pull up a chair!

And…you’ve just discovered my weird ability to relate almost anything to musical theater.

Seriously, there are some great things coming up here at the VLM, and I wanted to post up a quick reminder of some of the awesomeness.

I’d write a longer post, but I’m smack in the middle of producing a new show…which you should come see.  It’s called “Noisy Neighbors: A Frog Story” and it opens on March 14th in conjunction with a fabulous exhibit called “Frogs: A Chorus of Colors.”  Both toad-ally cool things will be around through the summer, so be sure to come and enjoy.

Just two days after the opening, Phil Plait will be here!  Do you have your tickets yet?  Don’t miss out – Phil is a wonderful and exciting speaker who shares great science with his audiences, and people of all ages love him.  Tickets for his March 16th talk at 7pm at the Ferguson Center are available ONLY through the VLM for $10.  Be sure to purchase yours in advance, as they will not be available at the door.  Call the museum now at (757) 595-1900 to reserve yours.  And don’t forget to join Phil at the VLM after the talk for some evening observing at the Abbitt Observatory!

Dr. Philip Plait, author of the Bad Astronomy blog and all around really cool guy.

And as if that weren’t enough, we’ve got another great speaker coming to the VLM on March 31 – Dr. Ellen Stofan, Chief Scientist for NASA will be joining us to tell us about the agency’s past triumphs and what the future holds.  This talk is FREE, and begins at 6:30pm in the Abbitt Planetarium.  Seating in the planetarium is limited, so be sure to arrive early for this unique opportunity to meet NASA’s Chief Scientist.

Okay, back to work for me!  Stay safe in the coming winter weather (remind me never to listen to any groundhogs ever again!)

Carpe noctem!
