The Westminster College Planetarium will host three public shows on Saturday, February 25 beginning at 5 p.m with a final show starting at 8 p.m. Each event lasts one hour and all shows begin with a tour of the night sky using the planetarium. The event is free and open to all.
The first feature of the night is "The Girl Who Walked Upside Down," which recounts the story of a young girl with a curious imagination and love for the Moon and stars. The show is appropriate for audiences of all ages.
The presentation of “Bizarre Moons” begins at 6:30 p.m. Often overshadowed by the planets, “Bizarre Moons” highlights the functionality and many aspects of these “minor members” of the solar system. The show is appropriate for audiences ages 8 and up.
The final presentation ends at 8 p.m. with an encore showing of “The Girl Who Walked Upside Down”. After the 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. shows, there will be rooftop stargazing if the weather permits.
