Wernher von Braun and President John F. Kennedy/NASA 1963The Space Race - Saturdays, April 6, 13, & 27  at 7:30 PM 

As we prepare for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing VBAS begins a series of presentations for the next 4 months detailing events leading up to man's greatest achievement--landing on the Moon. We begin by looking at the Space Race between the world's superpowers: the United States and the Soviet Union. Join VBAS President Don Reed as he takes you through the history of rocketry and events that led to the race that culminated in Neil Armstrong being the first human to walk on the Moon.

Spring Skies - Saturday, April 20 at 7:30 PM 

Ever wonder how the date for Easter is set? Come and learn more about this ancient calendar item. We will also darken the dome and enjoy all the wonders of the spring sky, with an emphasis on those Messier Marathon targets! Presented by Beth Bero, VBAS Vice-President.
