Astronomy Night at Driftless Area Wetlands Centre in Marquette

What do you know about astronomy? Do you find yourself curious about the dark blue night and twinkling stars? If so, come to the Driftless Area Wetlands Centre in Marquette for Astronomy Night on Friday, February 15th from 6:00-8:30 pm and spend an evening exploring the science of the great unknown.

Astronomy specifically is a branch of science that deals with celestial objects, space, and the physical universe as a whole. Sit back and relax as you watch a digital planetarium program. It’s an experience you won't forget! With programs starting every half hour, feel free to come and go as you please.

In addition to the digital planetarium, there will also be amateur astronomers to converse with and learn from. They'll guide you through exploration while looking through a telescope. Do you know the names of the constellations? Can you find them? What are the plants' names? Learn all this and more!

This is a fantastic opportunity for the whole family to spend some quality time together. Challenge your mind with hands-on science activities, get inspired, and use this experience to further family-fun time in the great outdoors. 

Refreshments will be provided for your pleasure and this event is for all ages. It is hosted by the MFL MarMac teachers and Starsplitters of Wyalusing.

Learn more about the space that surrounds the third rock from the sun!
