Aerospace Evening with the Omaha Astronomical Society

September 15, 2017 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

September 15th, Friday, 6-9pm

The Aerospace Evening is a free event open to children of all ages on  at the UNO Durham Science Building.  The Omaha Astronomical Society will provide telescopes to view and discuss observations, aiding Girl and Boy Scout to accomplish their Astronomy badge.  UNO will provide free planetarium shows and allow participants to view celestial objects from the top of the Durham Science Building.  Astronomy magazine, the Planetary Society, Griffith Observatory and NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory will also send free literature and handouts for all ages.  We also plan to have displays for each solar system planet, create your own lunar crater demo, touch meteorites, launch straw rockets, try on astronaut suits and offer samples of astronaut ice cream.  Additionally, we will ask for children participation in lunar phases demos, scale of solar system and elliptical orbit demos.
