I know everyone reads their “EMU Today” very closely, but in case you missed it, some friends of the site have asked me to announce the planetarium shows coming up soon. Here’s the details:
PLANETARIUM FEATURES THE MOVIE “STARS”: Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Others burn bright and end their lives in powerful explosions. The EMU planetarium will feature the movie “Stars,” Friday, February 8 and 22, 7 p.m., in the Mark Jefferson Science Complex. New stars are created every day, born of vast clouds of gas and dust. Through every phase of their existence, stars release the energy that lights the Universe. Journey to the furthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of stars.
“Stars,” narrated by actor Mark Hamill, is the Sudekum Planetarium’s first original full-dome, digital production. Adventure Science Center collaborated with the National Space Centre in Leicester, England, to create this stunning 26-minute show exploring the powerhouses of the universe and our relationship with the night sky throughout history. For more on the show, go to Stars Movie. Recommended age for the movie is 13 years and older. Following the movie, participates will get to enjoy a live demonstration of the current night sky locally. Space is limited. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online at EMU Tickets. Additional movie screenings will be shown on the following dates:
Friday, March 15
Friday, April 12 & 26
