Tellus’ family science night aimed at space lovers

Space travel enthusiasts, take note: This Friday night, you can hear an astronaut, see a moon rock, and gaze at the stars at Tellus Museum in Cartersville.

The highlight of the evening will be remarks by Al Worden, pilot of the command module of Apollo 15, the first mission to put a rover on the moon. Visitors to the museum can also see a moon rock brought back from that mission and engage in hands-on activities related to space.

The observatory will be open for solar viewing until sundown, and then after dark, the telescope will be pointed either at the moon or Jupiter.

The special event is free for Tellus members and is included with regular admission for non-members. Another perk for members: They can attend a members-only reception with Worden from 5-6:30 p.m. for an additional $15 per person.

For more information, call (770) 606-5700.
