FREE PLANETARIUM SHOW: Our Violent Planet
We live out our lives on our planet’s fractured crust “plates” that pull apart, collide, grind past each other, and even sink below one another. This produces violent earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and catastrophic walls of water known as tsunamis.
Recommended for ages 5 and up.
Show times: 5:15, 6:00, 6:45, 7:30 and 8:15 PM
KID’S ACTIVITY: Unique to birds and their dinosaur ancestors, feathers have evolved into impressive biological structures that come in a surprising diversity of colors and forms. Join us as we look at various feathers under our stereoscopes.
OBSERVATORY: Sunset is at 6:44 PM EST. Solar observing is from 5 – 6 PM. After dark possible targets: Mars, Star cluster M15, Andromeda Galaxy, Pleiades or Seven Sisters.
