"NEW EVENT!
VWs Under The Stars!!!"
See the stars up close and personal! Join us for VWs Under The Stars, Saturday Aug. 1st, 2009 at the Science Center, located @ 7701 22nd Ave N, St Petersburg, in celebration of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, 40 years ago... After an optional Planetarium Show, ("Summer Colors - Constellations of the Summer Night Sky", Cost: $3 each. See times below), the members of the St. Petersburg Astronomy Club will set up their telescopes for a public showing, from dusk until 11pm. You can move from scope to scope, viewing stars, the Moon, Saturn, and other celestial bodies... When was the last time you saw Saturn's rings or counted the moons of Mars? What color is Orion's belt...? Plus, from 8:45pm to 10:45pm, they will be showing the Movie, "Apollo 13."

SIDE NOTE: Star gazing requires partial or NO clouds! If you are traveling any long distance, please check weather reports for late evening. This is always a great family outing and a unique FREE opportunity...! Professor Darryl Schrader of St. Petersburg College will be lecturing on lunar astronomy and cosmology. This date was selected to coincide with the best viewing of the full moon.

A major feature of this event will be to collect student’s (and family) names to be included on a microchip that NASA will send to Mars as part of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission, scheduled to launch in 2011. Participants will be part of Mars history.

5:00pm to 9:00pm: Planetarium Shows
7:15pm to 8:30pm: Professor Schrader’s lecture
8:45pm to 10:45pm: Telescopes and Observatory viewing

Food vendors will be there to provide food for purchase
