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.
