Our Urban Park Rangers will be your guides to the solar system, discussing the science, history, and folklore of the universe.  Fall and winter are the best times to observe meteor showers, the phases of the moon, and many planets of the Milky Way.  Night Sky programs highlight the history and folklore of the solar system, using the naked eye to locate stars and planets.
