By Lookout Staff
March 22, 2018 -- The work of an 18th Century French comet hunter and a view of one of the Moon's most dramatic craters will be featured next month at the Santa Monica College John Drescher Planetarium.
The viewing through a variety of telescopes will be guided by the planetarium’s director.
The show April 27 will preview the Mars INSIGHT mission scheduled to launch May 5 and land on the Red Planet on November 26.
The mission "carries a suite of instruments designed to probe the interior structure and heat flow characteristics of Mars, organizers said.
The John Drescher Planetarium, which features a Digistar projection system, is located near the elevators on the second floor of Drescher Hall, 1900 Pico Boulevard.
Tickets are available at the door and cost $11 ($9 seniors and children) for the evening’s scheduled “double bill," or $6 ($5 seniors age 60 and older and children age 12 and under) for a single show or telescope-viewing session.
