At the Nix Nature Center off Laguna Canyon Road we had a night viewing event with some of the OC Astronomers. A June marine layer clouded us out again, but we had 50 or so who visited our virtual solar system tour.
Thank you to the park visitors, volunteers, and staff for a fun evening! We’ll be back on October 28th for View the Moon night!
Our Mobile Observatory is officially open! At the Mission Viejo public library, and accompanied by speeches from mayor Wendy Bucknam, Science Heads Executive Director, Richard Stember, and other local dignitaries, Science Heads cut a ceremonial ribbon for the MOBS.
Our celebration event featured science-themed stations demonstrating photosensitivity via make-your-own sun prints, leverage, rapid oxidation (burning) of steel, safe sun viewing, geometric patterns, blood composition, and jet propulsion.
