Astronomy Events

Jupiter is the highlight of the summer evening sky, shining more brightly than any star.

The Museum of York County is delighted to announce that retired astronaut and the former administrator of NASA, Charles Bolden, will be at the Museum on the afternoon and evening of July 16, to help us kick-off our Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Week events. Mr. Bolden’s appearance and remarks will follow a screening of the American Experience documentary “Chasing the Moon,” and there will be an opportunity to take selfies with him. We’re over the Moon about this! Watch for more details soon. Seating is limited.
