Family Discovery Day: Into Outer Space

April 29th, 2017 | 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Celebrate National Astronomy Day at the Minnesota Discovery Center!
Meet members from the Range Astronomy Club, play an astronomy trivia game, learn about the solar system, make a traditional Finnish paper star, see a real astronaut suit from NASA on display, and try on an astronaut helmet. If there is a clear sky, the Range Astronomy Club will be setting up telescopes for safe viewing of the sun with a sun filter, and for daytime viewing of the moon.

There will be a special half hour presentation about backyard astronomy by Range Astronomy Club member Dale Kentoph at 1:30pm.
