Posted by: jrivera on October 9, 2012, No Comments

East Stroudsburg University invites the general public to attend an original sky show, entitled “October Skies” and a feature show, “Black Holes,” at 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Friday, October 19, 2012. The shows will be held in the McMunn Planetarium in the Warren E. ’55 and Sandra Hoeffner Science and Technology Center.

The original sky show, “October Skies,” will be shown on the state-of-the-art Spitz SciDome projection system. It will be a traditional sky show describing what can be seen in the heavens this month. 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 8:00 a.m. (October 15), on a first-come, first-serve basis at www.esu.edu/planetarium. Another planetarium show is scheduled for November 16, 2012. Reservations for this 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@po-box.esu.edu. A schedule of planetarium shows for the fall 2012 semester is posted at www.esu.edu/planetarium
