The S.A.G.E. Planetarium, located at 38060 20th Street East, on the Northeast corner of East Avenue R and 20th East, is host to a number of Astronomy presentations each month as well as the monthly club meetings of the Antelope Valley Astronomy Club.

Visiting the Planetarium is free for the Palmdale School District, including head start. All groups outside the PSD pay $125 per show and also need to make arrangements with Jeremy.

The SAGE Planetarium is open, free to everyone, three times per month. We hold a Public Night in which we show regular school shows and a Group Night in which groups large and small may come and not worry about how large of a group they bring. Both are free, however, reservations are required. For reservations and show dates and times, call Jeremy at 273-7646. The third time the public may come and visit the planetarium is at the regular AVAC meeting held on the second Friday of every month at 7 PM.

Announcements

 

On Friday February 9th at 7pm, we will have Rahul I. Patel, Ph.D. to give us a presentation.  Dr. Patel is a postdoctoral researcher in astrophysics at Caltech/IPAC.  He works on identifying solar systems that might harbor planets by searching for and characterizing the dust around other stars. Dr. Patel will take us on a quick tour through the history of exoplanet discoveries, detection techniques, what we can learn from the current discoveries, and what the astrophysics community has planned for the next decade.

On Saturday February 10th at 6pm we have a Prime Desert Moon Walk at the Prime Desert Woodland Preserve in Lancaster.  Weather permitting.  Free and open to the public.  Telescope viewing before and after the walk.
