Stargazing and fossils at Tellus this weekend

November 13, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

This week’s cloudy skies are expected to clear on Friday, just in time for a night in the observatory at Tellus Museum. The museum will host Sky Watch on Friday, Nov. 16, from 7 to 10 p.m. Using a 20-inch telescope, visitors will look for a double star, the Snowball nebulae, and the Andromeda galaxy. Cost is $5. (This gets you into the observatory only; the museum will be closed.) If the weather is rainy or cloudy, check the museum web site to see if the event is canceled.

Then on Saturday, rain or shine, Tellus will offer a paleontology workshop for ages 8 and up, from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The workshop will teach fossil identification and how to tell geologic time. Cost is $15 for museum members, $30 for non-members. You must register in advance by noon on Wednesday, Nov. 14.
