It's our summer week off, so here's one of our most popular past programs. The Planetary Society and many of Ray's other friends decided to throw a birthday bash for him, even as the Earth passed closer to Mars than it had in tens of thousands of years. Join the fun as it moves up to the Mount Wilson Observatory. Bruce Betts joins in for a What's Up! segment in total darkness.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
