Astronomy Day at the Rauch Planetarium

The track was wet for the Kentucky Derby, but there are clear skies in the forecast for the Astronomy Day Celebration at Gheens Science Hall’s Rauch Planetarium on Friday, May 10th. The festivities will take place from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. at 106 West Brandeis Avenue at the University of Louisville. Admission to this three tier event is only $5.00, but Planetarium members are admitted for free.

The evening will explode into action at 7:00 p.m. with the presentation of "Asteroids: Finding Them Before They Find Us". This visual event exhibits the importance of tracking asteroids as they visit our solar system, including the large asteroid that recently lit the Russian skies.
