Astronomy: Universe of the 1920s - Deep Sky
2-day event: 10/12/2012 - 10/13/2012
In the 1920s, our universe was perceived very differently than it is today. Visit the Lake Afton Public Observatory this fall for their Universe of the 1920s programs. You will get to observe various astronomical objects through their big telescope and learn what astronomers thought they knew about these objects in the 1920s and what we have learned since that has altered our perception of the universe we live in.

The Universe of the 1920s -- Deep Sky programs will observe dim, deep sky objects that canít be seen when the moon makes the sky too bright. During this program, Observatory visitors get to look at a multiple star systems, clouds of gas and dust called nebulae, vast clusters of stars, and even a distant galaxy. Beginning in November, Jupiter will also be featured.

In addition to the observing programs, the Observatory also has many exhibits for you to explore. You will be amazed at the economic rewards that have come directly from the space program. You can learn more about what astronomers thought they knew about the universe in the 1920s and compare that with what we know today. Or maybe you would like to find out what we know about Jupiter now. Other Observatory exhibits give you an opportunity to: discover the properties of light; touch rocks that came from space; and use a computer to go on a scavenger hunt through the solar system, or land a spacecraft on the Moon. You can also go outside to learn how to use a small telescope or binoculars to explore the night sky on your own.

Admission:
$5 for adults
$3 for ages 6-12
Under six admitted free
Family Rate: Mom, Dad, and all their immediate children - $15
