Second Saturday Space Safaris:
Stars of the Pharaohs

14 December, 2004 — Explore Ancient Egypt by becoming a time & space traveler during this exciting adventure program. Dr. Kelly Gregg, Physical and Earth Sciences Department, and JSU Field School’s Renee Morrison (as the zany explorer Dr. Darling) will be leading this program.

Space Travelers will watch an exciting dome film that offers the participants the experience of feeling as though they are traveling through great pyramids and into mysterious tombs to discover what the ancient Egyptians saw in the nighttime skies. Dr. Darling will be introducing "King Tut"... her 6-foot python!

This program is the second of a NEW six-month series of planetarium programs that allow participants to travel through space and explore planet Earth during these six thrilling astronomy programs for families and children in which kids learn about outer space, watch exciting dome films about Earth and its creatures, and sometimes meet live animals.

Families who attend will receive a “Space Travel Passport” and children who collect three or more stamps on their passports will receive a surprise gift at the end of the series in May.
