At the Creation Museum, we run regular “Stargazer’s Nights.” These programs are run by AiG astrophysicist Dr. Jason Lisle. Using the museum’s high-quality telescopes and also the museum’s planetarium, Dr. Lisle helps people go to the stars! The planetarium shows are extremely popular programs, and soon the people attending these events will be able to also use the incredible telescopes being installed in the new Creation Museum observatory.
We had a neat story from this past Friday’s Stargazer’s Night. It was an amazing evening with very clear skies. The participants looked at Jupiter, star clusters, binary stars, and a supernova 27 million light years away. Hundreds of people have attended the ten Stargazer’s Nights that we scheduled this spring and summer (some of which were added after other events sold out). We have announced twelve more dates for 2012 to address the large demand for these programs. (See http://creationmuseum.org/events/programs/stargazers/.)
For the Stargazer’s evening this past Friday, two guests traveled over 1,100 miles just for this event and the opportunity to see Dr. Lisle. Jennifer and her step daughter Jackie drove from Austin, Texas, for the sole purpose of being part of this event. I spent some time talking to them. The following picture is of Jennifer and Dr. Lisle:
Thousands Hear Creation Messages in FloridaMany thousands of people, as well as hundreds of children and young people on Monday morning, heard the creation apologetics presentations Dr. Gary Parker and I gave while in Jacksonville, Florida.
