Join us for a night of stargazing, featuring Dr. Scott Roby, Associate Professor of Astronomy.  The featured topic will be “Invaders of Mars,” focusing on our neighboring planet and recent discoveries and developments in our knowledge of it.  Was it a water planet? Were there really canals on Mars?

Roby will also provide information on viewing the night sky in our area.  Professional equipment will be available for closer viewing of the cosmos and to observe the stars, planets and full moon.

As program size is limited, pre-reservation is required. unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate large groups for this program.   Participants must be age 12 and over.  Doors open at 6:45 pm.
