Event Details

Join us for our next Astronomy Night!

We’ll begin with a presentation by Dr. Rosa Williams on objects in the Summer evening skies. After that (weather permitting), we will move to the telescopes to view objects such as: the rising planet Saturn, “dark-sky objects” such as the star-forming Eagle and Swan Nebulas (M16, M17), the Dumbell Nebula (M27), and the Great Hercules Globular Cluster (M13).

Join the Columbus Coca-Cola Space Science Center staff for an evening of star talks, star maps, and night sky viewing. Bring a chair or blanket for sitting on the grassy field. Meet at the baseball field off Rte. 354, across from Liberty Bell Pool.
