Right now, there are more than a dozen Earth science satellites in orbit, helping NASA scientists better understand the effects of climate change. Through their Eyes on the Earth interactive website, you can “fly” along with the satellites, taking in a view of the Earth from space. Here on the ground, you and your family can also meet a member of the team working on the climate change project during the JPL Mars & Stars event on Saturday, September 28.
OC Parks welcomes back NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for a series of educational public programs showcasing various deep space missions. The second event in a three-part series will come to Limestone Canyon on Saturday, September 28 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. with a special presentation called “Climate Change Overload: Reconnecting with Planet Earth.”
Following the presentation, guests can enjoy telescope stargazing against the darkened night skies found in this beautiful canyon, and have an opportunity to meet Tenenbaum. OC Parks will also provide a kids’ craft area with space-themed projects as we wait for the sun to set before the presentation.
This event is free and open to the public with pre-registration. The presentation will be held outside under the stars, so it is recommended to dress warmly. Join OC Parks and JPL for the perfect family adventures through the galaxy this fall.
