Come see the big picture — of the Universe — as the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh hosts its 20th annual Astronomy Days on January 30 and 31. Check out Mars in 3D, view the sun safely through solar telescopes, launch your own rocket and meet live animals of the constellations. You can also meet a live astronaut! Retired space shuttle pilot Susan Kilrain, who has traveled nearly 8 million space miles while circling the globe more than 300 times, will talk about her amazing experiences. Free.
