Sky Programs with NASA Ambassador Rhiley Binns

August 25, 2018

NASA Ambassador Rhiley BinnsJoin us for two great sky programs presented by NASA Ambassador Rhiley Binns on Saturday, August 25 at Honey Creek Resort!

Sailing to the Sun: 1 p.m. - Upper Terrace
Join NASA Solar System Ambassador Rhiley Binns as we learn all about our closest star - the sun! We'll explore the science behind sunburn, solar wind, solar eclipses, and more through hands-on demonstrations and hear about NASA's recently launched Parker Solar Probe. Weather permitting, we'll follow our program up with safe, up-close viewing of the sun through solar binoculars and a solar telescope.

Stargazing 101: 8:30 p.m. - Meet on the Upper Terrace and walk to the vantage point
Space may seem far away, but you'd be surprised how much you can explore from your own backyard. In this program, NASA Solar System Ambassador Rhiley Binns will help you to discover the constellations, planets, and deep-sky objects visible in the Iowa sky through a guided night sky tour, in addition to telescope viewing (weather permitting). We'll also learn how to use a star wheel and current star gazing apps, so you can "starhop" when you return home!

About Rhiley Binns

Rhiley Binns is a Program Coordinator with the Science Center of Iowa (SCI) and a NASA Solar System Ambassador. Her work as an informal science educator and NASA volunteer helps to bring space to participants in central Iowa and across the state. Through the lens of science, our everyday lives can be filled to the brim with questions to ask and exciting worlds to explore: the ordinary is elevated to the extraordinary. Rhiley believes her role as an educator is to help others to view our Earth, the universe, and our place in it with a sense of wonder and curiosity. A passion for science has led Rhiley on a journey that’s so far included researching bats, caring for red pandas, and reaching for the stars in whatever ways she can from here on Earth, which is mostly through the eyepiece of a telescope. Her favorite NASA missions include Apollo 8 and 12, Curiosity, and Voyager, because they have such prominent human elements that make space seem like it's truly within anyone's reach. Her favorite planet is Jupiter (but it's Pluto in her heart). Rhiley holds a B.A. in Biology from Central College in Pella, Iowa.
