ACT ONE: The Planetarium: Normally closed on Mondays, the Museum’s Provost, Jeff Rodgers has agreed to provide a customized planetarium program for the Yale Club of the Suncoast.
Provost Rodgers’ presentation will look at the night skies visible from our area before launching Earth to fly us through space to explore our solar system, newly discovered solar systems, our galaxy and the billions of other galaxies in the observable universe. There will be ample time for questions after our return to Earth.
ACT TWO: Luncheon in the Museum’s courtyard catered by Pier 22
ACT THREE: Linking the Galaxy to Earth’s History: After lunch a tour of the Museum’s first floor will link the galaxy to Earth’s history over the past 4.6 billion years, Florida’s geologic history over the past 500 million years, the fossil evidence of the past few million years and the archeological record of human habitation of Florida over the past 10,000 years. (Of course, there will be time to see the manatees!)
