Sally’s Night is a nationwide celebration of women in STEM led by the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. Sally’s Night honors Sally Ride’s legacy as an astronaut, physicist, educator, and advocate for young people. In recognition of the 40th anniversary of Sally Ride becoming the first American woman in space, over 20 organizations across the United States will hold events focusing on women and underrepresented genders in science, technology, engineering, and math. More information can be found at airandspace.si.edu/sallysnight.
In partnership with Abrams Planetarium and the MSU Observatory, the MSU Museum is celebrating the life and career of Sally Ride with special activities at the Abrams Planetarium including stargazing after sunset and looking through telescopes at the Moon and the planet Venus in quarter phase.
Before Sally’s Night activities begin, discover the wonders of our sun in the planetarium show Sunstruck starting at 8:00PM. Learn more and purchase tickets here.
