Saturday, April 29th, the Buffalo Museum of Science and Buffalo Astronomical Association will celebrate International Astronomy Day. Special activities will be available from 11am-4pm. Astronomy activities are included with general museum admission.
The Buffalo Astronomical Association will provide visitors of all ages with the chance to connect with the universe around them via talks, demonstrations and activities hosted by BAA experienced observers. Learn how a telescope works and how to use one to explore the night sky. BAA members will provide guidance on selecting the perfect telescope, for those looking to invest in one – or learn how to make you very own! Participants will enjoy experiencing the wonders of distant planets and galaxies through astro photographs taken by BAA members from their own backyards. The BAA will also conduct solar observations (weather permitting). Join in on the fun and view our nearest star! Complete details available at www.buffaloastronomy.com.
