This evening the brightest part of our Milky Way galaxy is joined by the most brilliant of all the planets to make for a spectacular view. We’ll start inside with a slide show on the planet Venus and the stars which form the Winter Hexagon. Then, weather permitting, we’ll go outside for telescopic views of Orion the Hunter, Sirius the Dog Star and super-bright Venus which will look like a tiny crescent Moon. Co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Astronomical Association.
Families, ages 7 and older.
