It is a busy time at the Planetarium! We have 3 more shows this week; Wednesday at 6:30pm (Makeup for Cailyn Wallace’s show that was snowed-out on 11/15), and Thursday at 6:30pm and 7:30pm for Astronomy Night.
Tickets for the planetarium shows are available; visit our homepage and click on “Reserve Tickets”
Students from the class “Planetarium Operation” will continue to present the shows. Wednesday we have Cailyn Wallace and Thursday we have Dan Suite at 6:30pm and Samuel Froeschl-Tuttle at 7:30pm.
"Our nighttime sky is full of constellations, yet some are more well-known than others. In this show, we will explore some of the more obscure constellations our sky has to offer, as well as explore the obscurity of ourselves in the vast Universe we inhabit."
“For as long as humans have existed, we have looked upon the stars and planets. In 1610, Galileo discovered the first moons other than our own. Since then, we have learned much about the objects within our Solar System. Join us on Thursday, November 29 as we explore our neighboring planets and moons.”
Latecomers cannot be seated due to the darkened environment inside the Planetarium, so please arrive on time. Tickets presented after the start time listed on them are void.
On Thursday the Smolen Observatory will be open for viewing if the sky is clear from 7:30 – 9:30PM. As always you can call the observatory phone number at (845)[masked] to check the weather status.
