    Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 10:30 AM, a Smithsonian Astronomer leads a complementary lecture using the digital dome exploring the night sky called "The Stars Tonight"; tickets free!

    Saw the Black Hole movie here... a little disappointed in the quality of the visual... the film is cool, of course, but I guess I'm spoiled by my HDTV.
