Dance of the Planets

Tuesday, May 26

Astronomy Live

The evening sky of June 2015 will be exceptionally interesting because of its array of bright planets. Using the Zeiss IX Planetarium projector, Joe Rao will demonstrate how the two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter, slowly approach each other on the final night of spring for a spectacular conjunction. Meanwhile, shining sedately in the southern sky is the “Lord of the Rings,” Saturn, displaying the best views of its rings in at least 10 years.
