Springfield Science Museum
October 18, 2011
Stars Club member Mike Kozicki will give a talk about Jupiter at the Springfield Science Museum on Friday, November 4, at 7:30 pm. Following the talk, the museum’s large rooftop telescope will be opened to view the giant planet. If it is cloudy, a planetarium show will be presented instead.
Stars Over Springfield observatory programs are offered on the first Friday of each month from September through May. The program features an introductory program on topics such as space exploration, seasonal sights of the night sky, current astronomical research, or an explanation of events such as an eclipse or the appearance of a comet.
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.
Free onsite parking is available. For information about astronomy programs at the museum, call 413.263.6800, ext. 318.
