7:30-9:30 pm: Party With the Stars is back at the Columbia Public Library. This month features viewing Saturn, Mars and the summer constellations in our September skies. As the library is closed, remember to enter through the Gene Martin Secret Garden at the west end of the main parking lot, and meet in the Children’s Program Room (aka “the egg”) to start with a slide show of the two visible planets and some of the top stellar events of the season. Then, weather permitting, head outside for a laser sky tour and telescope views of both the planets and an exploding star or two. Everyone receives a free star chart. Co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Astronomical Association. For families, ages 6 and older.
6-9 pm: First Friday is also back in downtown Columbia. Focused in the North Village area, from Walnut and Orr Streets, venues include the art reception and awards for the Beneath the Surface (One Read) show at Orr Street Studios, Artlandish Galleries, and the September show at Sager Braudis Gallery. See events with “FF” in the title for more.
