Join guest speaker, Dr. Alex Lockwood of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and rangers for night of discovery and stargazing.

NASA’s next great observatory, the James Webb Space Telescope, will complement the Hubble Space Telescope but see things in a whole new light: infrared light that is! This HUGE (21 foot) telescope will unfold in space and take pictures of distant planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies, to give us a more complete picture of how our universe works. We will witness stars being born and see some of the earliest things created in the universe. Dr. Lockwood will talk about this telescope, its amazing engineering, and the incredible scientific discoveries it will bring to humanity.
