Hey everyone! Travis here with another Tampa Bay area event that you'll definitely go otu of this world for! Ok, ok, ok...bad joke in to an astronomy event, but I had to do it.
On Saturday, May 2, MOSI will host Astronomy Day to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy. Guests can enjoy sun viewings through MOSI’s solar telescopes* and shows in The Saunders Planetarium from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. including the new full-dome digital video, Two Small Pieces of Glass—which follows two students as they learn about the history of the telescope and its contributions to the science of astronomy.
Plus, the M.A.R.S. Club, will be on-site to provide information and answer questions on stars, planets and more! Also, from 8-10 p.m. on May 2, guests can view Saturn and the moon through MOSI’s telescopes during SkyWatch*—a FREE outdoor event.
The Astronomy Day activities are FREE with MOSI admission. SkyWatch (evening) is FREE and open to the public. Remember it takes place at The Saunders Planetarium at MOSI, Museum of Science & Industry, 4801 East Fowler Avenue.
