Astronomy: Universe of the 1920's - Moon & Planets Program
2-day event: 11/30/2012 - 12/1/2012
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.

During the Universe of the 1920s -- Moon & Planets programs, Observatory visitors will view the Moon's craters and maré, Uranus, a multiple star system, and beginning in November, Jupiter through the big 16-inch telescope.

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
Please note that we are unable to accept credit or debit cards

Location: Lake Afton Observatory, 20 miles southwest of downtown Wichita at MacArthur Rd. (39th St. S.) and 247th St. W. in Lake Afton County Park. It is immediately north of the lake, just off MacArthur Rd.

Opera and Musical Theatre Series presents:: "She Loves Me"
3-day event: 11/29/2012 - 12/1/2012
Location: Wilner Auditorium

This warm, romantic musical is set in the 1930s where two feuding clerks in a European parfumerie secretly find solace in their anonymous pen pals not realizing they're actually writing each other. Based on Miklos Laszio's "Parfumerie" that inspired "The Shop Around the Corner" and more recently "You've Got Mail," this endearing show with old world elegance and nostalgia remains as universal and relevant as ever in this age of internet romance. (Rating G)

Tickets for this event are $16 with discounts available and they go on sale Nov. 8, 2012. For more information and tickets please call The WSU Fine Arts Box Office at (316) 978-3233.
