By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 11:47 p.m. HST, Aug 3, 2012

The Bishop Museum will hold an “Invasion of Mars” night from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Sunday to coincide with the planned landing of the Mars rover Curiosity.

The rover, inside the Mars Science Laboratory now in orbit around the Red Planet, will attempt a complex descent to the surface at 7:31 p.m. Sunday.

If everything works as planned, the museum will show any first pictures sent back by Curiosity. It will also have planetarium programs on Mars and other presentations.

Admission is free for Bishop Museum members, $10 for adults and $5 for kids 4-12. 

The planetarium, observatory and Science Adventure Center will be open that night. Call 847-8203 or go online for reservations.
