Comet Shoemaker-Levy Display with Link to Mt. Wilson

There will be a Comet Shoemaker-Levy display set up for the JPL Open House on July 16 & 17, 1994. The display will be in the museum area next to Von Karman Auditorium and will be staffed by Gil Clark. A one-page handout will be available. There will also be a link to Mt. Wilson Observatory, and Gil Clark will be downloading images from Mt. Wilson and displaying them during the Open House.

JPL Astronomy Club

Comet Fragment B impact will be occuring on July 16, 1994, the same day as the JPL Open House. The impact is scheduled to occur at 7:54 PM PDT. Members of the JPL Astronomy Club will be setting up telescopes in the West parking lot at 5PM when the Open House closes, and plan to stay until 10PM to view the Fragment B event.

General Information on the JPL Open House for 1994

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory's 50th anniversary of space exploration will be the focus of a two-day open house at JPL on Saturday and Sunday, July 16-17, 1994.

The open house will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days; admission is free, and guests may park in Lab parking lots.

Hosts at the Lab's main entrance will answer questions and direct visitors to points of interest, which will include the Space Flight Operations Facility and the Spacecraft Assembly Facility. Displays in JPL's main mall will focus on ongoing projects representing the Lab's work for NASA and other agencies.

"Welcome to Outer Space," a multi-image production about JPL's history, missions and future vision, will be shown in von Karman Auditorium. Also, full-size models of the Voyager and Galileo spacecraft and Galileo images of Earth, the Moon and asteroids will be available for viewing in the adjacent museum.
