Beyond the Sky 7/8

NASA Educators were recently in the area and James Madison University is partnering with NASA to teach local students more about space and science, and how it can be fun.

As some JMU faculty and student volunteers gear up for the upcoming Space Camp, there are a few spots left! Shanil Virani is the Director of the JMU Planetarium and the week long Summer Space Camp, and for more information about the camp please click the link here:

Virani says the demand for enrollment was so high this year, they are excited to say they will be offering the camp next summer. Likely in July as well. The best place to find that information as the time gets closer is to find it on the JMU Planetarium's facebook page. Not only can you find information about this and next year's Space Camp, but all other offerings during the year such as solar observing, monthly star parties, distinguished public science presentations, etc and it's always keep it up-to-date. You can find the information on their facebook page here:

Stay tuned in August, one of the best meteor showers happens every year and it's coming up, it's my personal favorite and last year did not disappoint. I'll post a blog as the time gets closer with dates and viewing opportunities, as well if the weather will cooperate. Not only is it one of the most vivid but also with warm August nights, it's one of the most comfortable to stay outside to watch the meteors.
