Go on a space expedition with the GRPM’s Chaffee Planetarium team on Thursday, October 08 at 6 p.m. to follow the OSIRIS REx mission!
The spacecraft OSIRIS REx is in flight to touch down on an asteroid on October 20, 2020, to collect a rock sample before returning to Earth. In this Backyard Stargazing event, learn about it’s flight and more! The GRPM team will also highlight the great Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, an event that happens once every 20 years and is taking place this December.
Fun for the entire family, this interactive presentation will also include a Q&A session. Meet-ups are $2 for GRPM members and $4 per link for the public. Only one link needed per household. Limited capacity, with early registration recommended. The GRPM will email by 12 p.m. on the day of the event with the event link to tune into at 6 p.m.
Meet-ups are in webinar style, so attendees will be able to see GRPM panelists, but not each other. Don’t forget to download your space Zoom Background from grpm.org/Home Museum.
