The American Space Museum is hosting a "Moonlight Roof Fund Drive" with telescopes, virtual reality Rilix coasters, and a spacey yard sale in the parking lot on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. with moon gazing ending around 9 p.m.
"We Need a Roof" Drive!
Join us all day and into the
Moonlight for Family Friendly Fun!
"We need a new roof, so instead of moonlight shining into the museum, we'll show you the Moon through big telescopes at our fundraiser," said Karan Conklin, ASM's executive director. "This will be a fun Autumn event for the entire family, a chance to de-stress from the elections and recharge before the Thanksgiving holiday," she said.
"What makes this event even more special it the fact that it coincides with the 49th anniversary of Apollo 12 landing on the Moon, and we will have telescopes that will show visitors exactly where that second moon landing occurred. Also visible will be the planets Saturn and Mars, the last looks before they set too close to the Sun in December," said Mark Marquette the museum's very own amateur astronomer.

-- The SALT program is an exciting, proprietary program that is currently under development. SALT stands for Strategic thinking, Administration, Leadership and Teamwork. Too many young people today lack skill and understanding in these areas. Schools, businesses and organizations are looking for young people who understand how to lead, how to work as a team, how to plan and execute, and how to problem solve. Get more information here.
The ASTRO KIDS book series, funded in part by the PNC BANK FOUNDATION will soon be unveiled by the Museum. Each book in the series will be tied to a specific STEAM and/or SALT theme. Get more information here.
