Hey! National Astronomy Day is April 21, but we're celebrating it a day early this year on Kellogg Plaza! Come look through a telescope at the sun, the moon, Saturn, and the Orion nebula. Help us grind the mirror and assemble a six inch telescope. And come talk to some very committed amateur astonomers from the Minnesota Astronomical Society.

What: National Astronomy Day at the Science Museum
When: Friday, April 20, 10:30 a.m. - 9 p.m.
Where: Kellogg Plaza

And just in time to go along with National Astronomy Day, this weekend is the peak of the Lyrid meteor shower. As showers go, this one is pretty mild -- just one meteor every few minutes (though in some years the rate has been much higher). But, with warm weather and clear skies finally making their way to the Midwest, of you are up late on Saturday night, you might try to check it out.
