During this event, the Besser Museum Founders Society will be serving cake and ice cream. Planetarium director, John Heath, will be hosting free mini-planetarium presentation in what will be one of the last opportunities to see the original Spitz A3P star ball operating before retiring the equipment in July to prepare for renovations.
