WHY: Carl Sagan was a Professor of Astronomy and Space Science and Director of the Laboratory for Planetary Studies at Cornell University. He served as an advisor and consultant to NASA, and played a major role in the establishment of SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence). He was a Pulitzer Prize winning author and most familiar to the public through his COSMOS series on NOVA. In addition to numerous awards, recognitions, and honorary degrees for his outstanding contributions, he is acknowledged as one of the most effective public faces of astronomy and space science throughout the world. Asteroid 2709 was named after him. Sagan died in December 1996.

To celebrate his legacy on the 78th anniversary of his birth, and to increase public involvement in the excitement of astronomy and space exploration, a local coalition of science and reason-based organizations announces the FOURTH ANNUAL CARL SAGAN DAY.

WHAT: A full day program, including teacher workshops, children’s activities, food, displays, poster display from Broward County Schools, tour of the solar system, games, door prizes, star-gazing, and many surprises. Scheduled keynote speakers include:
