Tellus Volunteer photographer Nick Johnson will share his journey with astrophotography and offer tips for photographing objects in the sky in various situations and conditions.

FREE PLANETARIUM SHOW: We Are Stars
Follow a group of Victorian time travelers as they learn about the origins of atoms. Witness the formation of the first hydrogen atoms after the Big Bang and then watch how those hydrogen atoms gather into galaxies and stars. Learn how the stars forged all the atoms needed to make life. We see the creation of planet Earth and follow the atoms and molecules through evolution, back to where the time travelers started their journey.

Recommended for ages 6 and up.
