Pascagoula Library to host Earth From Space Smithsonian Poster exhibit
The Pascagoula Public Library will showcase a Smithsonian Poster Exhibit: Earth From Space beginning June 1 through August 1, in the library atrium. The exhibit will be open at 9 a.m. until closing each day. To schedule a group visit or for more information, call the library at 228-769-3060. Earth from Space is 20-poster exhibition that features images and text from the popular museum exhibition of the same name. A collaboration with geographer and curator Andrew Johnston at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum’s (NASM) Center for Earth and Planetary Studies, the traveling exhibit won a 2007 U.S. Geological Survey communications award for science content.The exhibit presents large color reproductions of images captured by high-tech satellites constantly circling the globe, recording conditions and events that are nearly impossible to document on the planet’s surface. Rare views of events such as dust storms, forest fires, volcanic eruptions, and hurricanes are accompanied by text that explains how satellite imagery is gathered and used to explore the Earth. Documenting environmental cycles, natural disasters, and man-made ecological effects, satellite images provide clues about the dynamic nature of our planet and offer rich opportunities to engage students in a wide range of science curricula including geography, environmental studies, ecology, oceanography, and meteorology. The library is located at 3214 Pascagoula Street near downtown.
