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

Summer arrives when the sun is at solstice in June (this year, at 5:51 a.m., June 21). What does that mean and why does the sun seem to “stand still” in its daily north-south motion? We’ll get answers with an indoor, hands-on solar system demonstration. Then, at about 8:30 p.m., if it’s clear, we’ll go outside and use a 10-inch telescope to view the most spectacular of the planets—Mars and Saturn! Both portions of the program will be fun for kids and adults. Hosted by Val Germann and co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Astronomical Association. Enter through the Gene Martin Secret Garden, west end of main parking lot. Ages 6 to adult.
