Carl Sagan Day at Nurture Nature Center 10am-1pm @ Nurture Nature Center
Nov 8 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join us as we honor the life and achievements of the late Dr. Carl Sagan. Sagan was an astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, science popularizer, and science communicator in astronomy and natural sciences. He wrote more than 20 books, and over 600 scientific papers.

He is perhaps most famous for his role in the documentary series, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which Sagan narrated and co-wrote. The legacy of Cosmos lives on in the recently aired documentary series of the same name, this time narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson.

A live presenter will be available to answer questions and show you displays of Earth and space science. We will air a brief Science on a Sphere movie called, Pale Blue Dot, about Carl Sagan and looking at the Earth from the cosmic perspective.

Carl Sagan day is officially November 9th. We will be open and honoring it on Saturday November 8th.
