The theme for this open house is EarthScope: An Earth Science Program, and it will feature a public lecture by School of Earth and Space Exploration professor Ramon Arrowsmith. The lecture, titled “EarthScope: An Earth Science Program," will be held at 7 p.m. in the Marston Exploration Theater.

Lectures are 45 minutes long, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. Seating is on a first-come basis.

There will be one 3-D planetarium show in the Marston Exploration Theater at 9 p.m. Telescopes will be set up from 8 to 10 p.m. next to the Skyscape art installation.
