‘Everyday Earth’ program to enhance NASA Exhibit in December at Marshall library

Holly Hudson, director of Allen Memorial Planetarium in Terre Haute, will present “Everyday Earth Phenomenon in the Universe” at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 19 at the Marshall (Ill.) Public Library. This program is intended to enhance the traveling NASA science exhibit, “Here, There, and Everywhere: Science through Analogy, Near and Far,” which is on display at the library for the public through Dec. 30.

Hudson will explain in greater depth each of the phenomenon and concepts addressed in the exhibit as they relate to space, focusing on wind, shadows and excited gas. She will also dispel some of the misconceptions we have about space.

If the comet ISON is visible in the sky, she will also address the concept of solar wind and how it interacts with a comet to produce the tail of a comet.

This program and the exhibit are for all ages and are free.

For more information, or to register for the program, contact the library by calling 217-826-2535 or emailing

The library is at 612 Archer Ave.
