Westminster College Planetarium Presents "Just Imagine"

The Westminster College Planetarium presents "Just Imagine" Nov. 4, 6, 12, and 13 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 6 at 3 p.m.

 Imagination is the key to this cosmic journey.  The show begins by exploring the most common constellations, especially those of the fall and winter.  Past cultures have looked up at the sky and used their imaginations to see different patterns in the stars. 

 This show asks the audience to imagine what our world would be like with outthe moon?  What if our star was different, like a red giant or a hot blue star?  What might the last days of the universe be like? 

 Weather permitting, the audience of the evening shows will be invited to the rooftop observatory to look at the current sights in the sky.

 The show is free and open to the public.  Due to limited seating, reservations are required.  Call (724) 946-7200 between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to make reservations.

 For more information, contact Dr. Samuel Lightner, professor and chair of physics at Westminster College, at (724) 946-7204 or e-mail
