ARIZONA STAR TALES - NOTE: Until further notice, all events have been cancelled and no requests are being accepted at this time due to the pandemic
This month at the South Mountain Environmental Education Center we discussed the planet Venus so you could make your own decision: Sister Planet or Evil Twin? A crushing atmosphere of carbon dioxide that rains acid and snows metals, surface temperature so hot it would melt lead, a surface covered in volcanos, it's day is actually longer than its year, it spins upside down... WHAT!!!... Most attendees voted EVIL TWIN! The clouds kept us from telescope viewing afterwards so we used the time talking with folks one on one. As usual, a great time at 'SMEEC'.
Next month at the center, join us on Friday, 25 August at 6:30 PM for 'Our Moon: Let's Go There'. Everyone is welcome.
