Astronomy in the Park Tonight

Such a beautiful day! Come see us at Brittlebank this evening. Due to a couple of Riverdogs games, it'll be our last Astronomy in the Park until May 9th. But don't worry, we also have an event coming up this weekend at our dark sky site, weather permitting, of course.

The Sky Is Falling!

Not really, but we do have a few high-profile objects falling back to earth. The Humanity Star has fallen to earth sooner than predicted. And China's Tiangong-1 space lab is expected to fall back to earth over Easter weekend.
