Magnifying Mars

8/17/2018 | Van Meter State Park | Miami, MO

Join us at the park for a rare and exciting astronomical event. Val Germann of the Central Missouri Amateur Astronomers will be coming to the park to give a presentation about Mars and help visitors to locate and observe Mars through telescopes. This event will take place at the mound field, which is on Pinnacle Drive. The event will begin with a short presentation, followed by opportunities to observe Mars.

This event will be held weather permitting. If it is cloudy, we will be unable to see Mars and therefore will have to cancel the program.
