Event Name:  LCROSS Hits the Moon - Live!
Event Description:  The Adler Planetarium will show the planned impact of NASA's Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) live on the morning of October 9, 2009 in the Adler's Definiti Theater. This is a very unique opportunity - don't miss it! The event will begin at 6:00 a.m., alongside a live feed from the Adler's own 20-inch Doane Observatory telescope (weather permitting) as we attempt to see the impact plume through our telescope, as well. The NASA coverage will also include live camera shots from the LCROSS shepherding spacecraft. The event will end promptly at 7:00 a.m. This event is FREE, but advance registration is STRONGLY encouraged. Only 170 seats are available. Registration is ONLINE ONLY. If space is available on October 9, seating will be first come, first served, based on the capacity of the theater, though there is no guarantee that day-of space will be offered. Doors open at 5:50 a.m.; the event ends at 7:00 a.m. The rest of the museum will not be open at this time. (Go to the Adler web link listed with this Space Week calendar listing to access the registration site, parking information, and more.)
