Learn About “Sisters of the Stars” Under the Stars at the Franklin Institute
The Franklin Institute’s Night Skies in the Observatory series is always a good bet. Every month, chief astronomer/author Derrick Pitts leads a program that includes visits to the rooftop telescopes and the planetarium and it’s only $10.
But this Wednesday’s program is extra cool, because:
- It’s entitled ‘Sisters of the Stars: Women of Astronomy and Space Science’ and will focus on the sometimes hidden figures (wink) who’ve helped shape what we know about space.
- It’s somehow not sold out yet. These things always sell out.
- The weather forecast calls for “mostly clear” skies.
Night Skies in the Observatory: Wednesday, March 8, 7-10 p.m., $10, Franklin Institute, 21st and the Parkway.
