Museum Offers Community a Night with the Stars
The Arizona Museum of Natural History (AzMNH) invites the community to join them for “A Night with the Stars” on Friday, September 30, 2011, from 6 – 9 pm at the AzMNH, located at 53 N. Macdonald in Mesa.
During this evening of exploration, not only can visitors see the objects of natural history, anthropology and art already on display, but the museum galleries will also have special activities including crafts and demonstrations from 6 to 7 pm, and telescope viewing with the East Valley Astronomy Club from 7 – 9 pm.
Students from Arizona State University’s School of Earth and Space Exploration will also be available in the Hubble Exhibition to discuss their research. To make “A Night with the Stars” even more celestial, visitors will have the opportunity to meet and view a presentation by Arizona State University Professor and former NASA scientist, Rogier Windhorst, Ph.D. Dr. Windhorst will discuss the James Webb Space Telescope, the most advanced telescope system ever developed to peer into deep space. The Webb will look back in time to see the very first stars and galaxies just after the Big Bang, and search for water and CO_2 in the atmospheres of Earth-like planets around nearby stars. It will be NASA's sequel to Hubble.
“A Night with the Stars” will be an evening of exploring for the whole family; everyone from the space exploration novice to the enthusiast will want to take part in this remarkable program.
Admission for non-members is $7 per adult and $4 per child and students with identification, no discounts or passes will be accepted. Admission for members is free.
