Frozen PlutoWarm summer evenings are some of the best times to learn the night sky. There are well known constellations such as Cygnus, Lyra and Aquila. The Milky Way is at its brightest and interstellar dust lanes of our galaxy are visible to the eye in locations far from city lights. In addition to the bright stars and familiar constellations, through most of this summer the planets Venus, Jupiter and Saturn are bright and easy to see. The summer of 2015 will also be historic. The NASA space probe New Horizons will reach Pluto and beam back the first close-up pictures of this small, frozen world. Join us at the Brown Planetarium to see the summer sky in all its beauty and for an update on humanity’s first exploration of Pluto.
