8-9 p.m. - "Space Junk 3D" in our IMAX theater!
Join Professor David Williams, who worked on NASA's Galileo Jupiter orbiter mission, for a discussion of the most active moons of the outer solar system. From firey Io to icy Europa, from Enceladus with its geysers to Titan with its methane lakes, rivers, and seas, these are truly strange new worlds that we are just beginning to explore. Seating is limited and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Also be sure to join local artist Julia Jones as part of our Arts Under the Stars program in the Dorrance Planetarium. Jones' work is described as slow, methodical and rooted in family. Her work looks at relationships and personalities that define them and she is able to capture those relationships and emotions on her canvas. Come and experience her work as it comes to life on the dome of the Planetarium, a unique event you won’t want to miss!
