See the closest planet to the sun, then follow it up with a lunar photograph with your point-and-shoot camera or cellphone.
Cost: $7 per person
Astronomers: Paul Fusco and Ron Schmidt
If it is clear, we'll have the roof open and the telescope pointed up. Our astronomer will explain what you are seeing and answer questions.
If it is cloudy, we'll use the large screen LCD inside the center to learn how to find some of the same highlights from our own backyards. All events are rain or shine. Children must be accompanied by a registered adult. Please dress for the weather.
