The Irving Archives and Museum (IAM) is hosting "Observing With NASA," an exhibit kiosk from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory that engages visitors in the art and science of NASA imagery.

"Observing With NASA" offers an introduction to the tools, data and skills that NASA space scientists and data visualization experts use to create the images of deep space objects that we all know and love.

On display at IAM through May 28, "Observing With NASA" features a range of NASA’s most iconic images to explore, and opportunities for visitors to put their own artistic spin on these images through image analysis and processing. Intrepid explorers will also be able to receive recent images of various objects in space sent via email. 

The Observing With NASA project is a partnership between the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and Smithsonian Affiliations, supported by NASA award number 80NSSC19M0158.

Plan a visit to explore all the exhibits, the Spark! Lab and the gift shop. The Irving Archives and Museum, located at 801 W. Irving Blvd., is open Wednesday through Saturday 10 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Visit for additional information including ticket prices and current exhibits.
