Images of Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, and Mars

Join McDonald Observatory for a live tour of our solar system. Your hosts Stephen Hummel and Martinique Pautzke will show you exceptionally high magnification views of several planets (and one dwarf planet) in our solar system, and explain the significance of their orbits and positions.

The targets, weather permitting, will be:

  1. Jupiter
  2. Saturn
  3. Pluto
  4. Neptune
  5. Mars

Moderators will be in the live chat to answer questions, and some questions will be forwarded to Stephen and Martinique near the end of the program.


Can't make the live stream? This event will be recorded and remain on the McDonald Observatory channel.

Hope for clear skies!
