The Department of Conservation & Recreation’s Visitors Museum at Western Gateway Heritage State Park will present "Empire of the Sun," an illustrated lecture, at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12.

From the fiercest storms to the coldest regions, this space encounter will verify there is more to the solar neighborhood than imagined.

Western Gateway Heritage State Park is located south of the Hadley Overpass on Route 8. The Visitors Museum is in building #4. Information: (413) 663-6312.
