DBRL Programs

Party With the Stars
Columbia Public Library, Gene Martin Secret Garden

Tonight we will explore deep planetary space — the realms of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto! We’ll start inside with a program on the latest discoveries from this region, including photos from the New Horizons spacecraft that recently flew by Pluto. Then, weather permitting, we will use a large, computer-controlled telescope to track down the three most distant planets, which we have never been able to show before at the library. Hosted by Val Germann and co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Astronomical Association. Enter through the Gene Martin Secret Garden at the west end of the main parking lot. Ages 6 through adult.

We will once again venture out into deep space, starting indoors with a program on the outer planets and several bright galaxies visible tonight. Then, if the skies allow, we will head outdoors and use a telescope to view Uranus and Neptune, the "Phantom Galaxy” and more. Early November can provide cool and clear viewing weather, so be sure and come by for a look. Hosted by Val Germann and co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Astronomical Association. Enter through the Gene Martin Secret Garden at the west end of the main parking lot. Ages 6 through adult.
