New Events Planned for Planetarium
The Del and Norma Robison Planetarium will feature some new events this semester, beginning with a special Valentine’s Day show.
Anyone can visit the planetarium website and purchase a star to rename it for a significant other. Starting at 6 p.m. Feb. 14, the planetarium will open and visitors can see their newly named star. The Valentine’s Day shows will also explore constellations with romantic myths.
The new show, “Dark Matter Mystery,” will debut Feb. 25 with back-to-back showings at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. There will also be free posters available at the door to anyone who shares a future Facebook post about the event.
To celebrate the birthday of one of the planetarium’s namesakes, Del Robison, there will be free shows all day, March 22. The door will be open beginning at 8 a.m., and all are welcome at no cost through 5 p.m.
The planetarium features screenings every Saturday at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. for $5 a ticket. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. For more information, including a schedule of all planetarium events, visit planetarium.truman.edu.
