This live planetarium program will feature the Summer constellations and visible planets. Special attention will be paid to objects that are easily visible with binoculars or a small telescope along with a discussion of the different types of viewing aids that amateur astronomers use to explore the night sky. We will also provide updates on the NASA New Horizons discoveries from the recent flyby of Pluto.

Origins of Life
Origins of Life will take you on an inspirational journey through time beginning with the Big Bang and continuing through the formation of the Universe, stars and solar systems, the first life on Earth, and the great extinctions. The journey ends with a discussion of our search for life beyond planet Earth. This celebration of life on Earth features many recent discoveries related to life science, demonstrating that if there was ever a time that science made its greatest advances, it’s right now!
