Humanity has always been fascinated by Mars, the Red Planet, making it a popular target for planetary exploration. It has been one year since Curiosity landed on Mars. Join us for an evening of exploring the August night sky and catching up on all the latest news from the Mars Curiosity rover.
Our popular monthly live planetarium show of the sky in SD that night reaches a new level of stunning full-color visuals and incredibly realistic simulations of cosmic phenomena with our new state-of-the-art digital GSX™ projection system. A professional astronomer leads backyard stargazers through the universe.
Weather and operational requirement permitting, the SD County Astronomy Association provides free telescope viewing outdoors on the Prado in Balboa Park.
This is a separate event held on the first Wednesday of each month from 7PM & 8:15PM.
