The term “20-20” is a synonym for having clear vision. For the year 2020 the Drake Observatory lecture series will present a clear vision of our Solar System. During the coming year we will follow the birth, formation, exploration and subsequent fanciful missions to the far reaches of our solar system including a stop at each of the planets, dwarf planets and some of the comets.
Lectures begin at 8:00 pm | Sky Viewing begins at dark, if clear | Admission is free and open to all
Spring: “On The Orion Spur” The formation of a solar system and its evolution.
Summer: “Taking A Closer Look” The actual investigation of our Solar System by probes.
Fall: “Potatoes On Mars / Tube Worms on Titan” Living environments on the other celestial bodies.
