Free Planetarium Show: Discoveries from the Moon

Posted on 9/13/2012 8:41:45 AM

Ken Coles from the Geoscience Department will present a free planetarium show entitled “Discoveries from the Moon” on Saturday, September 22, 2012, at 7:00 p.m.

Come hear about the major new findings from recent lunar missions, planned future missions, and watch the Moon's motion through the sky. Coles will also present the ever-popular look at the current stars and planets in the sky.

The show is open to the public, and will run about 40 minutes. If weather permits, the show will continue outside for a brief look through telescopes at the Moon (and other celestial sights).

Seating for the shows is first-come, first-seated; it's not feasible to take advance reservations. If you want to bring a large group [i.e., 10 or more people], contact Coles about accommodations, as seating is limited: 724-357-5626, 724-357-2379, or

The planetarium is in the east side of Weyandt Hall (the side away from the Oak Grove). Doors open at 6:45 p.m.
