Join the Wake for Pluto's Departure!
From Parke Kunkle, President of the Minnesota Planetarium Society:
"Join us for a wake in honor of our dearly departed planet Pluto. It was a good planet, and although it will have new life in the ranks of dwarf planets, we'll remember it how it was in its full planetary glory.
"We'll also have a telescope on the roof to view the quarter moon. Parke may be persuaded to give a short eulogy."
