Upcoming rocketry and astronomy events at Tellus

The Tellus Museum in Cartersville has a number of space-related activities on its calendar in the coming month.

This Saturday, May 7, for National Astronomy Day, the museum will have its observatory open for solar viewing by day, and viewing of the moon and Saturn after dark. The museum also will host three lectures on astronomy.

On June 3 at 7 p.m.,  visitors to the museum can hear Charles Carter talk about his work on the Saturn V rocket. The next day, Saturday, June 4, Tellus will offer a model rocketry workshop, where you can build and launch a model rocket. This activity is open to ages 8 and up. There is a fee ($10 for members; $25 for non-members) and reservations are required. Call (770) 606-5700, ext. 417, to reserve a spot.
