Planetarium Presents "Journey to the Stars"

Westminster College Planetarium presents "Journey to the Stars" Thursday-Saturday, March 30-April 1, at 7 p.m. in the Hoyt Science Resources Center room 116.

 This program takes visitors on incredible journeys of discovery.  One journey will start with dark interstellar gas drifting in the cold vacuum of space and end with seething whirlpools of gas surrounding a black hole.  Another will examine amazing astronomical phenomena close to home and extend to fantastic galaxies, billions of light years away.  A final journey will take us from great explorations of the past to endless possibilities for the future. 

Along the way, the program will explore how we use the electromagnetic spectrum to learn about space, the birth and death of stars, the planets, distant receding galaxies, and discoveries from the Hubble Space telescope. Come to the planetarium and take a journey to the stars. The show will conclude with a survey of the current night sky.

 The shows are free and open to the public, but because of limited seating, reservations are required.  Contact the Westminster College Department of Physics at (724) 946-7200 between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. for reservations or more information.
