The Lives of the Stars
Join NASA JPL Solar System Ambassador, Greg Redfern, for an engaging presentation to learn about how the stars, including our Sun, shine. How are they born, how do they live, and - ultimately - die? You'll never look at the stars the same after you learn their secrets. A jacket is recommended, and a flashlight is helpful. Free to all parkway visitors.
- "The Peaks Under the Stars" - If the sky is clear after the presentation, our guests will move outdoors to the lawn area at the edge of the lake to see the night sky in all its glory while listening to sky lore and fascinating sky facts.
Seating is limited, so reservations are recommended! Call 866-387-9905 to reserve your space today!
