Eventbrite - Arabian Nights

Since 1959, seven nations have sent over 50 spacecraft to the Moon including 6 people who stepped onto another world. What will it take to get us to Mars? Learn about the challenges associated with going to Mars and how we can use what we learned from over 50 years of lunar exploration to get us there. Enjoy indoor stargazing with a tour of the local night sky free of light pollution followed by the opportunity to ask questions of astronomer Jean Creighton.

Moon to Mars runs every Friday from July 5 to 26 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. each night. At $5 per ticket, this fun and affordable program is open to everybody. Buy tickets online or, if a show has not sold out, you may buy tickets with cash or credit card in the lobby outside of the Planetarium starting 30 minutes before the show begins.
