Look Sharp

We're being watched. Observers are constantly scanning our planet from space. Collectively, they are called the EOS, and they monitor everything. The EOS, or Earth Observing System, is NASA's primary satellite mission and The Museum of Nature & Science's Eyes on Earth is a new, interactive science exhibition that explores the network of satellites in orbit over our heads. It helps families and school groups learn what a satellite is, discover the different types of orbits and explore technology similar to that used by EOS scientists. Examine what we can learn about the Earth using space technology through fun, interactive displays in a "spacey" environment. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. The exhibit runs through September 1. Tickets are $5.50 to $8.75. Visit natureandscience.org for tickets and information.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
