This month's show info:

As May comes around so does the transition to super summer, though it is looking like a rather cool beginning. A month that would normally begin with 90 degree and end with 100 degree temperatures is giving us an opening week of low 70 to mid 80 degree highs. I'm happy!

Since I have been building new projectors I have not had a lot of time for new shows so I'm going to pull out an oldie called "Deep Impacts". This is about the remains of impact craters on the Earth. I will try and get a gentlemen with samples of meteorites from these locations so you can see proof of impact. No promises as of yet.

This special impact show will be presented only once at 3 pm on Saturday the 21st. More info as it becomes available.

On Monday the 9th from 9 am to 11:30 am a live viewing of the Mercury transit across the Sun will be projected in the dome.

On the "International Day of Astronomy", Saturday May 14th, it seems appropriate to present the "intro to the night sky and the planetarium" show at 1, 3, and 5 pm.

As usual, please RSVP with number of seats required, date, time, of show requested. Please also remember that "The Star Barn" is a "primitive" facility without bathroom facilities. Please plan accordingly.

Added info just received May 7: I am happy to announce that immediately after the 3 pm "Deep Impacts" show on Saturday, May 21st, Mr. Mike Marron of the "Phoenix Astronomical Society" will be on hand with his fabulous collection of meteorites from the various impact sites around the world. And, yes, this is a hands on exhibit so you can actually touch and hold these visitors from outer space.

Also, his knowledge on this subject (and many others) is orders of magnitude beyond mine, you can ask him anything and very probably get an answer.
