The Planetary Society creates and participates in events to bring the excitement of space exploration to public audiences. From our world-wide Planetfests to lectures in small-town libraries to hanging a solar-sail blade in Rockefeller Center in New York, we are constantly finding new ways involve our members in the excitement of space exploration.
Event to celebrate " Global Astronomy Day". Event will include a TPS Table, Astronomy Lecture, PBS-POV DVD showing Bill Nye video, and night time telescope viewing (weather permitting), located at the Shake-A-Leg Miami area in Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami Florida on the Biscayne Bay waterfront.
Spend the evening with fellow space fans for star- and planet-gazing alongside Celestron and Society experts and leaders, a display and silent auction of space-themed art, live music, children's activities, giveaways, and, of course, the main event: the full moon!
