Star Gazing Event in Arlington for Inauguration

NASA logoThere will be a star-studded Inauguration event in Arlington on Saturday (January 19) night. But the stars will be of the celestial, not celebrity, variety.

The David M. Brown Planetarium (1426 N. Quincy Street) will host NASA’s Star Party. Astronauts, astronomers and other experts will be on hand to talk about current NASA missions and the future of space exploration.

Weather permitting, one of the big attractions will be star gazing through the 15 telescopes set up in the plaza surrounding the planetarium. There will also be a variety of displays (both indoors and outdoors) relating to NASA and astronomy, including one featuring real meteorites.

Five seated shows will take place in the planetarium’s dome theater, but those have already sold out. No tickets are necessary to chat with the astronauts and experts, examine displays or take part in the star gazing.

“People of all ages can come and do something they don’t usually have chance to do, get one-on-one time with NASA astronauts and experts,” said NASA spokesperson Sarah Ramsey. “I think this is a great opportunity for people in the Arlington area and we’re excited to expand our Inauguration activities out of D.C. and into Arlington as well.”

The activities are all free and run from 5:30-9:30 p.m. In case of inclement weather, updated information about the event will be posted on NASA’s Inauguration activities website.
