Answers in Genesis is sponsoring several “Stargazer’s Nights” which will be led by BMH author and Grace College faculty member Dr. Don DeYoung. Here is an excerpt from the announcement–to view the entire post, click here.
Later this month and throughout the summer you can join the Creation Museum for an evening of astronomy, fellowship, and worship on a journey through the universe.
Our next Stargazer’s Nights will be on Friday, May 18, and Saturday, May 19. These exciting programs begin in the planetarium with an astronomy devotional. This is followed with a viewing of “New Horizons,” a program not typically presented at the museum. You’ll ride on a comet through our solar system!
The evenings will be led by astronomer Dr. Don DeYoung. A professor at Grace College in Indiana, Dr. DeYoung is known internationally for his work in creation studies. Dr. DeYoung and a team of talented assistants from the Creation Museum will take you on an amazing tour through the night sky. You will be treated to a variety of incredible views of the heavens through the telescopes in the new Johnson Observatory. Our museum staff informs me that : “There will be binary stars, nebulae, globular clusters, galaxies, and planets to view. You may even be treated to an iridium flare as a satellite passes by or a view of the space station as it races overhead. It’s amazing to actually see the colors of stars; one favorite is a binary pair of stars, one yellow and one blue.”
