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

Tonight we have a rare opportunity to watch the nearly full moon rise in the east, while we also enjoy beautiful views of both Mars and Saturn. We’ll start the evening with an indoor presentation on the orbits of the moon and planets, then, if the weather permits, we'll move outside to use large binoculars and a telescope to view the sky. 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-adult.

It’s a deep space spectacular this evening as the distant planets Uranus and Neptune bracket the Moon. We’ll begin with an indoor presentation of our planetary cousins, and, if it’s clear, we'll move outside for telescopic views of the cosmos. Our computer-controlled instrument will pick out Neptune and its amazing moon Triton, which is so cold that it has volcanoes of liquid water!)
