The Philadelphia Film Society has created a Drive-In movie experience at the Philadelphia Navy Yard that offers a socially distanced way to view an exciting curated slate of films, all from the safety of your own vehicle. PFS Drive-In at the Navy Yard is able to accommodate up to 200 cars per screening, films will be shown via top-of-the-line digital projection on a large screen fastened to stacked shipping containers, creating optimal vantage points for attendees.

From NASA: “Captured on Oct. 20, 2020, during the OSIRIS-REx mission’s Touch-And-Go (TAG) sample collection event, this series of images shows the SamCam imager’s field of view as the NASA spacecraft approaches and touches down on asteroid Bennu’s surface, over 200 million miles (321 million km) away from Earth.”
