DBRL Programs

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

Mighty Jupiter and brilliant Venus, the king and queen of planets, rule the sky as the spring equinox approaches. We will start our program indoors with a slide show on the coming of spring, and the latest discoveries about Jupiter and Venus. Then, weather permitting, we’ll head outside to the telescope for striking views of the planetary king and queen and a few members of their court, like the beautiful Orion Nebula. It should be a great show so don’t miss out! 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 to adult.

Party With the Stars

Tonight, the king and queen of planets, Jupiter and Venus, are joined by a wonderful princely moon. We’ll begin with a slide show indoors concentrating on the moon. If the weather permits, we will head outside for high-power telescopic views of the moon, Venus and Jupiter. April usually has great “seeing,” as the astronomers say, so our views could be especially good. 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 to adult.
