Description

When space telescopes like Hubble or the James Webb take photographs of the universe, we usually think that they produce gorgeously colored photos showing incredible detail but the truth is a bit different: the actual photos these telescopes send back to Earth are black and white.

In this self-guided activity, learn how the telescopes take their photographs and how scientists/artists take those pictures to create the beautiful imagery we see. Children and their grownups can then color in their own Nebula pictures based on real space telescope data.

Event is free with Museum Admission. Adults are $16.00, Children 2-12 & Seniors $14
