Join Pack 996 at the Danville Community Center at 420 Front St, Danville, and meet former NASA astronaut Daniel Bursch.
He will talk about his experiences in space and answer your questions. Bursch has been on four space flights, logging over 227 days in space, including 196 days as a flight engineer on the International Space Station, one of the longest single flights for a U.S. astronaut! Back in the earth’s atmosphere, Bursch has had an extensive career as a naval pilot.
Can’t get enough of space? After listening to astronaut Daniel Bursch’s adventures in space, we’ll get our own look into space. Mount Diablo Astronomical Society volunteers will bring their telescopes to observe the night sky from 8:30-10:00pm right outside. We should be able to observe a partial moon before sunset at 8:45pm, and much more after sunset!
This event is sponsored by Contra Costa County Library in partnership with the Town of Danville.
