09/25/2020 8:00pm 09/25/2020 10:00pm Family Night: September Equinox Stargazing We are bringing back monthly family night activities with ready to-go kits that can be picked up curbside. Look for a new activity each month, and you can even request a book bundle with five items to supplement the activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family! When you register, make a plan to pick up the kit the week of the event. This month we are recognizing the September Equinox on September 22nd with a to-go kit full of stargazing activities! For this celestial event, the sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This is also the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere. Sometime this week, enjoy a stargazing night with your family. The kit will include a laminated star and planet locator with an illustrated booklet, information about the sky, constellation crafts, and more!
