It’s the season to be thankful. And at the next planetarium show at the Edwin E. Ritchie Observatory, astronomer Steve Ruhl will look at manned space flights where the astronauts were thankful to be alive (other than Apollo 13).

The Battle Point Astronomical Association presents the show “Thankful to be Alive: Spaceflight Near Misses” is 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9.

Admission is free to BPAA members; $2 donation suggested for nonmembers, $5 for families.

If the sky is clear, astronomers will be on hand with telescopes.

BPAstro Kids will be working with steam power.

The BPAA is a nonprofit amateur astronomy organization that operates the Ritchie Observatory and John H. Rudolph Planetarium in the Helix House at Battle Point Park, 11299 Arrow Point Drive NE.
