Event Details

Join us for our next Astronomy Night!

The evening will start at 8 p.m. with a brief presentation by Dr. Rosa Williams on notable celestial objects visible in Fall evenings. Then (weather permitting) we will move to telescopes set around the field to view the planets Saturn and Jupiter, and “dark-sky objects” like the Crescent and Ring planetary nebulas (C27, M27) and the star-forming Trifid Nebula (M20).

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.
