The Eastern Ozarks Astronomical Society presented, “Our Missions to Space: Mercury to Jupiter to the Outer Reaches of our Solar System” at the Fredericktown Branch of the Ozark Regional Library on Jan. 9.
The presentation is the sixth in its ongoing series of monthly presentations at the library and is free to the public. The presentations explore a variety of topics related to astronomy and cosmology and are designed to appeal to all ages though some information might be difficult for young children.
The EOAS has monthly viewing sessions which are open to the public. Objects viewed range from the moon to planets such as Saturn or Jupiter to various kinds of nebulae to remote galaxies outside of Milky Way.
