Tonight’s Topic: Parker Solar Probe
The Parker Solar Probe is a brave new mission to our closest star, the Sun. Swooping in at only 4 million miles from the surface, this robotic spacecraft will help astronomers understand how heat, energy and plasma radiates away from the sun. Join us as we explore the sun and go closer than any spacecraft has gone before.
Night Sky Adventures are astronomy fun for the whole family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory, in conjunction with volunteers from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers group, present astronomy lessons, planetarium shows and night sky viewing (weather depending). Amateur astronomers and families are invited to bring binoculars or telescopes. One or more telescopes will be provided for public use.
Cost: Admission to miSci ($10.50 adult, $7.50 child age 3-12, $9 senior 65+), Free for miSci members
Come early to enjoy the museum galleries as well as the Dudley Observatory program. miSci will be open continuously from 9am through the end of the Night Sky Adventure. Beginning in September of 2018 Night Sky Adventures moves to Thursdays.
