Later this year, we are anticipating the brightest comet in 500 years (Comet ISON). Before the main course, however, you have the opportunity to enjoy a little appetizer. The Strategic Air & Space Museum is hosting a special Star Party on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, from 7:30 to 10:00PM for all to enjoy faint views of Comet PanSTARRS. Throughout the evening, we will also view a number of other beautiful objects such as the planet Jupiter, the Orion Nebula, and much more. Be sure to arrive during the first hour to see Comet PanSTARRS sitting near a very young crescent Moon. This event is open to the general public at no charge, and is sponsored by the Strategic Air & Space Museum and the Omaha Astronomical Society.
Our rain date is scheduled for Wednesday, March 13. Please follow us on Facebook for the latest updates and announcements.
