As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, some students are taking time to learn what lies beyond the dark sky.
Thomas Kasper, director of planetarium events, invites “any student who is interested in astronomy, the night sky and relevant topics in astronomy and space science” to stop in for a viewing at the Mark Jefferson planetarium.
Kasper said his favorite viewing event is STARS.
“It is our most popular show,” he said.
Tickets are $5, which Kasper said helps in covering costs, including performance licenses, staffing, running and maintaining equipment and a yearly license fee to show producers.
Other planetarium events include Saturn: Jewel of the Heavens, Back to the Moon for Good and Seasons of Light in December.
