Galaxies, planets and stars came to the San Manuel Library on May 27. Kevin Manning, astronomer and former consultant to NASA, presented ‘Look Up to the Stars,’ an educational and entertaining program for all ages. About 40 people in attendance learned about different galaxies, the sizes of planets and the sun’s special characteristics through colorful photos and animations. The lights were dimmed and participants were taken through an informational journey throughout the universe. After the free event, those in attendance had the opportunity to look at a sunspot on the surface of the sun through a custom telescope.Brittney Smith | San Manuel Library
