Look Up! — Explore the World of Astronomy

Look Up! — Explore the World of Astronomy

By: Heidi Herald

Next Monday, July 30th, Steve Haines from the Indianapolis Astronomical Society will present a program on Astronomy at the Fishers Library at 7 PM.  Geared towards adults, this program would also be interesting to kids 8+ with an interest in Astronomy.  Steve is a regular presenter at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum and a very knowledgeable speaker.  You can sign up to attend here.

If you won’t be able to make the program, you might be interested in some of these related titles at the Hamilton East Public Library:
