Space Day
Saturday, May 13 | 10 AM - 4 PM

Try exciting hands-on activities where you can:

  • Create a solar system that fits in your pocket.

  • Explore icy orbs that could teach us about life outside Earth.

  • Discover how the Earth, moon and sun work together to create eclipses like the one occurring this summer!

  • Travel around the solar system and beyond in the Noble Planetarium.
