East Stroudsburg University invites the general public to attend a sky show, titled “Long Winter Nights” and a feature show, “Black Holes,” at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday, February 15, 2013. The shows will be held in the McMunn Planetarium in the Warren E. ’55 and Sandra Hoeffner Science and Technology Center.

“Long Winter Nights” describes what can be seen in the heavens during the winter months.  The feature show, “Black Holes,” explores the dark world of a black hole and its life in space.

The program is open to the general public at no cost, but reservations are required due to limited seating. Reservations will be taken online starting at 8 a.m., February 11, on a first-come, first-served basis at www.esu.edu/planetarium. Another planetarium show is scheduled for April 5, 2013 as ESU celebrates the inauguration of Marcia G. Welsh, Ph.D., the college’s president, during the week of April 1-6, 2013. Reservations for the April 5 planetarium event will be taken the Monday prior to the show. Those interested in attending planetarium events may reserve up to four seats for a specific show. Programs are suitable for children, but be advised that the planetarium will be quite dark during the sky show and feature show.

Group inquiries should send an email request to stardomes@esu.edu. A schedule of planetarium shows for the spring 2013 semester is posted at www.esu.edu/planetarium
