Saukville library to launch variety of space-related programs this month

    An eclectic mix of space-related programs are scheduled to be held at the Oscar Grady Library in Saukville in July.
    Author and researcher Chad Lewis will discuss some of the most amazing UFO encounters Wisconsin has to offer during a 6 p.m. Thursday, July 11, program.
    Information about the moon landings and future NASA programs will be discussed by Brian Ewenson, executive director of Spaceport Sheboygan, during a 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 16, program.
    Ewenson, who worked for NASA and Lockheed Martin for 20 years, will discuss past moon missions and how the moon will be used as a gateway to Mars.
    Registration is required for the program.
    “First Man, The Life of Neil Armstrong” is the topic for the 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, History Bookmark Night — the library’s history club.
    In “First Man,” author James R. Hansen explores the life of Neil Armstrong, who in 1969 became the first man to step foot on the moon.
    “Between the Sky and the Earth” is the topic for a 5:30 p.m. Thursday July 25, program by local author, artist and musician Jaems Murphy on the history and making of comic books.
    Murphy, the local brain behind the comic book “Sexy Sam: The Guitar Man,” will talk about everything from how to plan a project to its successful completion.
    The presentation will be followed by a performance by Etherium Ensemble, a group gathered together by Murphy and featuring Keshena Armon on vocals. Honoring the tradition of jazz music they infuse popular songs with a neo-soul/jazz-rock/funk vibe.
    In keeping with Murphy’s talk, the performance will feature theme songs from favorite cartoon and children’s shows.
    Drones will be discussed by Lt. Christopher Jushka of the Wisconsin State Patrol’s Bureau of Field Operations, Special Operations Section, at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 27.
    Jushka will discuss recreational and commercial drone operations and how the State Patrol uses drones and fixed wing aircraft  in its operations.
