Stinson Library program features rocks from moon, Mars
Stinson Memorial Library in Anna hosted an outreach program presented by representatives from Chicago’s Adler Planetarium Friday morning, Oct. 11.
The library welcomed Michelle Nichols and Adriana Guzman from the planetarium.
Nichols is the planetarium’s director of public observing. Guzman is an astronomy educator.
Friday morning’s program featured hands-on activities for visitors.
The program also featured a chance to touch rocks from the moon and Mars.
The two planetarium representatives were taking part in an Astro Road Trip which included stops in several Southern Illinois communities Oct. 8-12.
A steady stream of visitors of all ages came to the Anna library and took the opportunity to feel a little piece of the moon and the red planet, Mars – thanks to meteorites which fell to the Earth's surface.
