Stars Over Springfield

Springfield Science Museum

January 22, 2008

The Springfield Science Museum's large rooftop telescope will be open for public sky-gazing on Friday, February 1, at 7:30 p.m.

Richard Sanderson, curator of physical science at the museum and a member of the Springfield Stars Club, will present a Lunar Eclipse Preview. On February 20, the Moon will pass completely through the Earth's shadow, resulting in a total eclipse.

The program will be held rain or shine. If it is overcast, a planetarium show will be presented in place of using the telescope.

Stars Over Springfield observatory programs are offered on the first Friday of each month from September through May. The programs are best suited for families with children ages 8 and older, however younger children are also welcome. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children 17 and under.
