Take Your Seat Among the Stars!
Chabot Space & Science Center is offering you the exclusive opportunity
to show your enthusiasm for astronomy and science education by sponsoring
a seat in the Ask Jeeves Planetarium or the Tien MegaDome Theater! The
sponsorship of a seat is a special way to pay a lasting tribute to someone
in your life who loves the stars or to commemorate your own passion for
astronomy. Many supporters have already honored a loved one, teacher or
organization by purchasing a seat in their name. Each sponsored seat will
be recognized with a personalized, inscribed plaque mounted on the armrest.
Inscriptions have ranged from an individual's name to unique dedications,
such as "Star Buddy", "A Skywatcher", and "A
Future Space Explorer." Seats are available for a donation of $500
each and limited seats are available so show your support today by filling
out the form below or calling (510) 336-7338 if you have any questions.
The planetarium and theater are exciting places to be! The Ask Jeeves
Planetarium was the setting for the Stellar Society "Celebrating
the Equinox" event. This lively evening was a recognition night for
the Science Center's individual major donors. A performance took place
by The Physics Chanteuse, also known as Lynda Williams, a physics professor
at San Francisco State University. Her cabaret show about the universe,
featuring the song and dance number, "Carbon is a Girl's Best Friend"
was a success. The Stellar Society has several spectacular events a year.
Please call Fara Gold at (510) 336-7314 for more information about joining
this special group.
Your support of the Science Center will help us continue the wonderful
programs and exhibits begun in our first year. We have opened new exhibits,
including "Shadowdance", where you partner up to create different
types of solar and lunar eclipses and "Hubble Space Telescope: New
Views of the Universe", where visitors can learn about the telescope,
its history and purpose. In the Tien MegaDome Theater we are showing To
Be An Astronaut where viewers venture inside the gates of NASA to experience
the rigors of astronaut training. The Director of Astronomy, Jose Olivarez
and Astronomer Ryan Diduck have worked together to create popular planetarium
programs, including The Sky Tonight, where visitors take a live tour of
the sky visible above their heads on the night of their visit. Our public
telescope viewing on Friday and Saturday nights have been a huge success,
especially with the invaluable help the EAS volunteers. Please visit our
website at www.chabotspace.org for more information about show times,
exhibits and activities. The Science Center is looking forward to its
second year and to welcoming the new and renewed participation and support
of EAS members.
