Description: Friday, August 29, 2014 at 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, and 8:30 pm Two Small Pieces of Glass: The Amazing Telescope Digistar 5 Full-Dome Planetarium Presentation All Ages Galileo’s telescopic observations began a revolution, transforming our views of the cosmos and our place within. It is a revolution which,over four hundred years later, continues. Today you can attend star parties where amateur astronomers set up their telescopes for public viewing. Views through such telescopes would have amazed Galileo. Two Small Pieces of Glass puts you in the middle of a modern star party. Discover the wonders that even a small amateur telescope can reveal and learn about the scientists that made such views possible. Produced by Carnegie Science Center, ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center, and Interstellar Studios. All planetarium events are free and sponsored by the Department of Physics within the College of Science and Mathematics at Georgia Southern University. Parking is available in the open-gated faculty/staff parking lot to the left at the end of Herty Drive (from Fair Road/GA Hwy 67) The planetarium is in the Math/Physics Building, across on the other side of the parking gates between the Eidson House (Honors) and the older Biology Bldg. We will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Statesboro Food Bank. Thank you for your donation for those in need. The Statesboro Astronomy Club will meet in the planetarium following the last presentation and observing.
