The space cadets from the Southern Cross Astronomical Society will be orbiting around a couple of Earth-bound events today. This morning theyll land at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden (10901 Old Cutler Rd., Coral Gables), where theyll introduce guests at the 66th annual Ramble Fundraiser to the joys of looking directly at the sun --through special filters on telescopes, of course. Later, as the sky turns a darker shade -- well, because of city lights, a somewhat darker shade -- of sky-blue, the party heads over to the Deering Estate at Cutler, where the Fall in Love concert serves as the soundtrack to an evening of gazing at winter constellations. Legendary musical artists Jeffrey Osborne and Nestor Torres will be performing.
The Ramble takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, $10 for children, and free for wee ones under age six. Call 305-667-1651, or visit www.fairchildgarden.org. The Fall in Love concert begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets cost $35. Call 305-235-1668, or visit www.deeringestate.org.
