This past Friday, we had a very special event at the Creation Museum. We invited the AiG supporters who donated to the new observatory project to come for dinner and an observatory dedication.While they were visiting with us, we took them down to the Ark property, and we also prayed for the Ark project as we stood on the very spot where the Ark will be built. Here are some photos from Friday:

This was an emotional moment as she sees the legacy of her father continued at the Creation Museum; her dad was an ardent creationist. This telescope was used in the NASA Moon Blink program in the 1960s."][/caption]
Keep watch on the Creation Museum website for AiG’s unique astronomy programs.
