Flandrau Planetarium / UA Softball Trip

The Caballeros Del Sol had another one of our very informative trips this Thursday. It started at Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium and concluded with a great tour of Rita Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium from head Arizona Softball coach Mike Candrea. Mike is in the National Softball Hall of Fame and the Division I wins leader in NCAA Softball history.Located at the heart of the University of Arizona campus, Flandrau explores our universe from earth to space and everything in-between. While in the Flandrau observatory we saw video of Saturn’s rings, all of the planets, the cloud belts of Jupiter, the Andromeda galaxy, and other stunning and beautiful images. The University of Arizona leads the OSIRIS-REx mission for NASA. For the first time ever, a NASA mission will bring back a sample from a distant asteroid Bennu.
