"It’s Time!”   8:15pm Presentation

Worthless, yet the most valuable commodity in the universe. Plenty to be had, but never when you really need it. Flexible, but rigid - without compromise. Cosmic, but wristed. How can time be so confounding but so simple? 

Hosted by Franklin Institute Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts, Night Skies in the Observatory is a monthly stargazing event held in the Joel N. Bloom Observatory. View celestial objects in the night sky, including stars, planets, nebulae, and if conditions are right, a galaxy or two, from 5 different rooftop telescopes in the Observatory. The evening includes a Fels Planetarium show and a lecture or presentation (appropriate for ages 8 and up) on an astronomical or space science topic. The Observatory is staffed with knowledgeable observers and free star maps are provided.
