May 2, 2016For the first time in nearly 10 years, the planet Mercury will be visible as it crosses in front of the sun on May 9. The Cosmosphere will provide its telescopes and specially fitted binoculars to the public to view the event between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Monday, May 9th. Join us (weather permitting) in the south parking lot of the Cosmosphere at the southeast corner of 11th Ave and Plum St.
February 1, 2016During the next few weeks, all five of the visible planets - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will appear in the sky at the same time. This fairly rare planetary treat hasn’t happened since 2005.
