Celestial Highlights: Parade of Planets with Steve Beyer
June 29, 2010 @ 12:00 am EDT
Join Steve Beyer and observe how Venus, Mars, and Saturn appear in the western sky when twilight fades during July evenings. Watch as these planets appear to move closer together in the constellations of Leo and Virgo and see how, at mid-month, the crescent Moon joins the group for a striking celestial line-up. On the last Tuesday of each month, enjoy a live presentation under the brilliant stars of the Zeiss Mark IX Star Projector. This tour of the heavens offers a view of the constantly changing night sky. Learn about the current positions of the moon, planets, and stars, as well as visual spectacles like meteor showers, eclipses, and conjunctions.
