TMSC Presents ~ June Skygazing at Talcott Mountain Science Center
June 21, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
TMSC Presents ~ June Skygazing at Talcott Mountain Science Center on June 21, 2019.
School’s out and Skygazing is in full swing as Jupiter makes its’ first appearance! As the fastest moving planet, don’t let this gas planet slip away!
We’ll await the stars inside the 44ft dome of Talcott’s Captain Alan M. Bean Planetarium; we’ll learn about the summer solstice and the night sky — including the stories behind the stars and the constellations that humans have created by virtually connecting these points of light — drawing pictures in the sky.
Make it your mission to visit Talcott Mountain Science Center and get your wheels spinning. With a campus build upon an old Nike Missile site — tucked away high atop Talcott Mountain — we’ll use a wide array of telescopes to look for stars, planets, and other celestial gems!
Because seating is limited and events fill up quickly, we recommend making your reservations early!
**Please arrive on time. Late arrivals will not be allowed to enter the planetarium after the presentation begins at 8:00 pm; they will, however, be able to participate in outdoor viewing with the group when the planetarium portion of the program concludes.
