Seeing Stars with The Bishop
The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature in partnership with Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources.
Join The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature to celebrate Astronomy Day on Saturday, May 7 at Robinson Preserve. We’ll have hands-on astronomy fun followed by real views of distant space objects after the sun sets during Seeing Stars with The Bishop.
During Seeing Stars, we set up tables to explore the science of space then provide and operate the telescopes; you enjoy the wonders of our universe. After dark, the waxing crescent moon and many of our favorite constellations, like Virgo, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, are expected to provide spectacular sights — weather permitting, of course!
