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!) 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.

"Iris" pairs the late documentarian Albert Maysles ("Grey Gardens," "Gimme Shelter") with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsize influence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. Shown in collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series (www.pbs.org/pov). Watch the trailer at dbrl.org/films. (2014, rated PG-13, 79 minutes)
