Stargazers look at Mercury at next planetarium show
Ritchie Observatory presents the planetarium show “Mercury: the Fastest and Smallest Planet” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8.
Mercury is a planet of many extremes. Join Astronomer Steve Ruhl on a journey to the first rock from the sun, a planet of fire and unlikely ice.
If the sky is clear, astronomers will be on hand with telescopes for public star-gazing.
The show is free to members of the Battle Point Astronomical Association; $2 donation suggested for nonmembers, $5 for families.
The Battle Point Astronomical Association 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.
