The Museum of the Earth is opening its doors on Tuesday evening, October 29, from 6 to 8 pm, to look at space in a spooky way with Cornell's Astronomy Graduate Network. Children of all ages will come dressed in costume and learn more about the universe. Graduate students from Cornell's Astronomy Department will have stations throughout the Museum dedicated to space and space exploration.

The Museum of the Earth's new "Bees! Diversity, Evolution and Conservation" exhibit will also be featured, and children will be offered candy treats as they visit the Astronomy Graduate Network's activities including the Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream and more!

The Cornell Astronomy Graduate Network serves to represent and promote the interests and visions of graduate students in the Astronomy Department and Space Sciences Building. AGN also aims to foster a sense of grad student community, and to increase awareness and enthusiasm for Astronomy at Cornell and within the general public. To these ends, it holds a variety of events each year, including a weekly Grad Student and Postdoc Seminar, and outreach events for the larger Ithaca community, such as the "Ask an Astronomer" and the Halloween "Museum in the Dark" event at the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca.
