Super Stellar Friday: Back to the Moon and on to Mars

Doors open at 6:30 PM and our program will begin at 7 PM.

“Back to the Moon and on to Mars” by Sally Jensen will delve into the Moon, what it is and how it affects our lives.  What if the moon did not exist? Sally Jensen will review how we explored the moon, how we landed on the moon, and how the moon will factor into our future endeavors to explore Mars.  Participants will be able to make a moon calendar showing all of the phases for the 2019 year as well as participate in other moon activities put on by the Discovery Center.

Sally Jensen teaches middle school students about LIFE, in the name of science at Waterville Valley Academy.  When she is not teaching, she pursues music, playing her clarinet in the Plymouth State University Symphonic Band and a bari saxophone in the Big Band Jazz Ensemble as well as singing in the Pemi Choral Society, and the Mountain Lake Chorale.

She works with teachers planning workshops on the current curriculum that is available with each mission exploring space. She is a NASA Solar System Ambassador and gives presentations to the public and teachers on various space exploration topics.

Doors close at 9:30 PM.

The all-inclusive price for Super Stellar Friday at the Discovery Center is $11.50 for adults, $10.50 for students and seniors, $8.50 for children 12 and under, and free for members. Pending clear skies, our observatory will be open and members of the NH Astronomical Society will be outside the Discovery Center at dusk with telescopes pointed to the sky, ready to share their knowledge and views from their telescopes for free.
