Astronomy: Worlds of Science and Imagination | # Add to my Outlook calendar
Location: Lake Afton Observatory. 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.

Bring mom to the Observatory for the program "Worlds of Science and Imagination." Moms and grandmothers receive free admission when accompanied by a paying child. (Limit one free admission per paying child.)

The idea of space travel, visiting exotic distant worlds and encountering strange intelligent beings has fired man's imagination for generations. Now, science fiction comes to the Lake Afton Public Observatory this spring in the program, "Worlds of Science and Imagination." Visitors will use the Observatory's 16-inch telescope to look at the Moon, Mars, Jupiter or Saturn and a multiple star system as Observatory staff discusses the science and the fiction surrounding them.

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 two parents and their immediate minor children or grandchildren get in for just $15.00.
