Posted by: jrivera on January 28, 2014, No Comments

East Stroudsburg University invites the general public to attend a double feature sky show titled “Long Winter Nights,” at 7 p.m. and “Two Small Pieces of Glass,” at
9 p.m. on Friday, February 7. The shows will be 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, “Two Small Pieces of Glass,” details the history of the telescope—from the time of Galileo to the launch of NASA’s Hubble space telescope.

The program is open to the general public at no cost, but reservations are required due to limited seating and are on a first-come, first-served basis at www.esu.edu/planetarium. Reservations will be taken beginning Monday, February 3. 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 e-mail request to stardomes@esu.edu. A schedule of planetarium shows for the spring 2014 semester is posted at www.esu.edu/planetarium.
