Novato is home to the Space Station Museum and every year they present the Novato Space Festival. This year, astronauts in attendance include Al Warden (Apollo 15) plus several space shuttle astronauts, including Jerry Ross, Nicole Stott, Bruce Melnick, Dan Bursch and Novato’s own Yvonne Cagle. Admission is free, and this year, families with children 12 and under can enjoy early admission at 9:30, and a special book reading at 10am by Astronaut Jerry Ross in the museum Moon Room. If you’re a fan of all things NASA, Novato is the place to be for this annual space event that draws thousands of space enthusiasts. Please note that the astronauts will only be signing their books for sale. No other items will be autographed. Meeting, asking questions and photos with the astronauts are encouraged!
