Description

MARS... the red planet. This rocky planet, fourth from the Sun, could harbor life and is the focus of much science and intrigue. Come learn what makes this planet so interesting and discover the autumn sky. What will you see? Ice caps? Canals? On this particular date Mars will be at its very best and will be at a good altitude for the relatively rare Mars opposition (when it will be closest to earth).

The program begin promptly at 7:00 pm. Allow generous time to arrive and park.

$50.00 per adult, $45.00 for seniors (62+) and students, and $40 for members.
