It has been an exciting week for space exploration, with the Curiosity rover landing on Mars and a meteor shower taking place late this Saturday night. To celebrate the meteor shower the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History will be holding an Astronomy Extravaganza this Saturday. To tell us more about the incoming meteor shower we welcomed the museum’s Astronomy Programs Manager, Javier Rivera, to our set for KEY News This Morning. Rivera even made us a comet on set. The Astronomy Extravaganza will take place at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History this Saturday from ten a.m. to ten p.m. It will feature comet demos, planetarium shows, a free telescope raffle as well as an assortment of other activities.
