Astronomy Day and Night at Maple Grove:A Cosmic Family Experience
Saturday, May 14, 2011 4:00 PM–9:00 PM
Children enjoyed Maple Grove's Astronomy Headquarters for a 45-minute workshop which focused on educating and entertaining about astronomy and the wonders of the night sky.
The Astronomy Day Adventure starts in STARLAB, a portable planetarium, 25 feet across and 13 feet high, which simulates the sky and brings the stars and planets indoors! Everyone enjoys the constellations with Greek Mythology and Native American stories.
Astronomy Night at Maple Grove: 8:00 PM–9:00 PM. This event was FREE FOR ALL! Maple Grove is an ideal venue (dark without city lights) for Stargazing using our Celestron Telescope and guided by 2 astronomy specialists. All welcome to bring their own telescopes and binoculars.
