COLLEGE TO OFFER FREE PLANETARIUM SHOW

 

ONEONTA, N.Y. -- The SUNY Oneonta Department of Physics and Astronomy will hold its first planetarium show of the fall semester at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, in the college’s state-of-the-art digital planetarium.

The show, which is free and open to the public, will highlight the constellations, stars and planets visible in the night sky and take the audience on a virtual voyage through the solar system, galaxy and universe. It will conclude with a short movie on the planetarium’s Digistar projector system, which uses the same kind of high-tech equipment found in an IMAX theater.

The planetarium is located on the basement level of the Science I Building on West Dormitory Road on the college campus. Because seating in the planetarium is limited, registration for the show is required and tickets must be presented at the door. To register and obtain a ticket, visit http://oneontaplanetarium.eventbrite.com/.
