Grandeur of the Galaxy: Space Chaos!fri · feb 23, 7pm · Sweet Branch
The Clark Planetarium and the Sweet Branch have teamed up to bring you this space-tacular after-hours event for teens and 'tweens age 10 and up. If you think winters in Salt Lake City are bad, just wait until you learn about extreme space weather. You'll look to the skies through a telescope to see storms on other planets, and then together we'll create a fire tornado. Because this is an after-hours event, registration is required. Please call the Sweet Branch at 801-594-8651 to register.
