Planetarium – Tim Campbell
September 26, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Take a tour of the planets Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, then take a spin around the galaxy to view our Sun look back from several hundred light years away. We’ll check out the night sky and talk about the constellations and interesting objects visible in the autumn sky.
Tim Campbell has always been interested in space. He was inspired watching the Apollo missions as a young child, but was really hooked when he saw the rings of Saturn through a telescope. While you can still find Tim looking through telescopes, these days he wants to know how these things work — geeky science experiments are often added in for extra fun. Tim is a volunteer NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, a past president and active member of the Ford Amateur Astronomy Club in Michigan, and is also a planetarium operator and presenter at Henry Ford College. Tim does numerous outreach events and talks both under the night sky and indoors.
