Because of Mars‘ close proximity to Earth this weekend, the Red Planet will appear brighter in our sky than it has since 2003.
Here’s where you can get a good look at our neighboring planet:
Emil Buehler Planetarium
July 27-28; August 3-4
Located at Seminole State College in Sanford, the viewing party will take place on the south patio adjacent to the lake next to the E. Ann McGee Student Center, just across the parking lot from the planetarium. It is free to attend, and all ages are welcome.
Orlando Science Center
The observatory is the only part of the Science Center that will be open during this viewing party, and the event is weather-permitting. Tickets for the event are $5 per person, even for OSC members. Al ages are welcome (children 2 and under are free). Tickets must be purchased in person at the Science Center and are available for purchase during normal building hours: 10am to 5pm Monday through Thursday; and 10am to 11pm Friday.
