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

Summer's end offers fine viewing of planets and the Moon. We’ll start inside with a program on the evening’s sky and then head outside, weather permitting, for views of Mercury, the Moon, Saturn and Mars. Mercury is visible only for short periods of time so this will be a treat. The Moon will be a beautiful thin crescent, almost at its thinnest visible point. Saturn will be the “star” of the show with its beautiful rings on display, and Mars will be at its reddish best. There will be free moon maps and star charts for everyone. 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.
