Observatory Open HousePresented by: Dr. Wes Ryle
On September 15th, the Cassini spacecraft will make a final plunge toward Saturn's cloud tops, burning up as it plummets through the atmosphere. The intentional de-orbit will mark the end of the mission's 13+ years in orbit around Saturn. Come celebrate the incredible wealth of knowledge and beautiful imagery provided by Cassini and take one last look at Saturn before it leaves the evening sky.
Weather permitting, join us after the talk for a viewing of Saturn, the stars and more at The BB&T Observatory. Thomas More College faculty and students will be available to help the public view the night sky through a telescope.
This talk is intended for a general audience. All ages are welcome. The event is free and open to the public.
