Hear About the Hope Diamond at Tellus Science Museum
Come to Tellus Science Museum to see the twinkle, twinkle of little stars through their observatory and hear about the Hope Diamond, a massive gem that their guest speaker, Jeff Post, knows all about.
This special presentation is scheduled for Friday, November 21st at 7 PM.
The Hope Diamond is a 45.52-carat deep-blue diamond housed in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.
Please Note: Contrary to popular opinion, the real Hope Diamond is different from the rock that women hope their boyfriends give them — someday — on bended knee. Thank you.
Come and hear this story from Dr. Jeff Post, Curator-in-Charge of the Smithsonian’s gem and mineral collection and the man responsible for the care and display of this unique gem.
Dr. Post will be available for book signing immediately following the lecture. A limited number of Dr. Post’s book, The National Gem Collection, will be available for purchase in the Tellus Store.
Enjoy Jeff’s chat at 7 PM, watch a free planetarium show brought to you by Shaw Industries, shop in the store and have dinner with the family in the Café. That’s a nice family night you’ll remember.
Tellus Science Museum will be open until 9 PM and the Observatory will be open until 10 PM, weather permitting. Tellus Astronomers will be on-hand to help you navigate the stars.
Add some sparkle to your family this Friday at Tellus!
