Battle Point Astronomical Association presents 'Pareidolia in Space'

The planetarium show “Pareidolia in Space” comes to Ritchie Observatory at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, June 8. Astronomer Dave Fong will present unusual objects discovered in outer space that may resemble something more down to earth and how these perceived similarities may reveal the workings of the inner space of the mind.

Admission is free to Battle Point Astronomical Association members; a $2 donation is suggested for nonmembers, $5 for families.

If the sky is clear, the group will also check out some deep sky wonders through the telescopes of BPAA astronomers.

The BPAA is a nonprofit amateur astronomy organization that operates the Edwin E. Ritchie Observatory and John H. Rudolph Planetarium in the Helix House at Battle Point Park.
