February’s evening sky is showing us some love, according to a sky gazer at Jacksonville’s Museum of Science & History.
Eddie Whisler, director of the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium, says the planetarium will help viewers see some cosmic couplings of binary stars and merging galaxies Friday at MOSH. They’re calling it “Matches Made in the Heavens.”
“(We) want to point at some of those places where binaries and couples are spinning off inside of the universe — the ultimate matchmaker — and just look at that and just create some kind of a parallel to our daily lives,” Whisler said.
Many times what looks like a single point of light is actually a multiple star system, he said.
“Matches Made in the Heavens” will start at 7 p.m. Friday at MOSH on Jacksonville’s Southbank. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. You can find ticket information here.
The program is part of MOSH’s every-other-month program series geared to people ages 13 and up.
