Two Small Pieces of Glass
October 14 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Celebrate the work of those who used telescopes during the past 400 years. The largest observatories in the world use these instruments to explore the mysteries of the universe.
Join two young people at a star party as they learn how telescopes continue to expand our understanding of the Universe. A local astronomer teaches them how telescopes work and how the telescope has changed from Galileo’s modified spyglass – using two small pieces of glass – to the huge, space and land-based devices of today, like National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA Hubble Space Telescope.
Appropriate for all ages.
