Astronomy: Celestial Favorites
2-day event: 4/18/2014 - 4/19/2014
Location: The observatory is located about 20 miles southwest of downtown Wichita on MacArthur Road at 247th Street West in Lake Afton County Park. It is immediately north of the lake, just off MacArthur Road. Lake Afton can be reached by any of the following routes: west from Wichita on U.S. 54 to the Lake Afton sign at Viola Road three miles past Goddard, then three miles south and one mile east; or southwest on K-42, 7 miles to Schulte and nine miles west on MacArthur.

With so many beautiful objects to view in the evening skies, sometimes it is difficult for the staff of the observatory to decide what to look at. So we have decided to let our visitors help us out. In addition to looking at Mars, Jupiter or Saturn, and a cluster of stars, Observatory visitors also get to vote on an additional celestial object that they would like to observe.

Adults: $5.00
Children 6-12: $3.00
Under 6: Free
Special family rate: 2 parents and their minor children or grandchildren admitted for $15.00

For more information, call 316-978-3991 or email robert.henry@wichita.edu.
Open to the public.

Astronomy: Photography - Mars
Location: The observatory is located about 20 miles southwest of downtown Wichita on MacArthur Road at 247th Street West in Lake Afton County Park. It is immediately north of the lake, just off MacArthur Road. Lake Afton can be reached by any of the following routes: west from Wichita on U.S. 54 to the Lake Afton sign at Viola Road three miles past Goddard, then three miles south and one mile east; or southwest on K-42, 7 miles to Schulte and nine miles west on MacArthur.

The Observatory also features a photography program each month where anyone with a 35mm single-lens reflex camera (a camera with a removable lens) can take celestial photographs using the Observatory's telescope as a giant telephoto lens. At 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 19th and again at 11:00 pm on Saturday, May 3rd, the photography program will feature the mysterious red planet, Mars.

Please note that for these astrophotography programs your SLR camera must have a manual override and you should be familiar with using its manual settings such as changing ISO settings and exposure times. For photographing bright planetary objects like Mars and Saturn, you will need an ISO setting of 400 or 800 and a cable release is recommended.

If you don't have a 35mm SLR camera, just bring a USB flash drive with you. The Observatory staff will help you use the Observatory's digital SLR camera to take your pictures. Your pictures will then be transferred to your flash drive for you to take home, process and print.

Admission is just $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 6-12; children under 6 are admitted free. There is also a special family rate where 2 parents and their immediate minor children or grandchildren get in for just $15.00.

For more information, call 316-978-3991 or email robert.henry@wichita.edu.
Open to the public.
