Upcoming Event
Event Name: Planetarium - Two Small Pieces of Glass
Event Occurs: Weekly
Event Description: Celebrate the work of those who used telescopes during the past 400 years. The largest observatories in the world use these instruments to explore the mysteries of the universe.
Join two young people at a star party as they learn how telescopes continue to expand our understanding of the Universe. A local astronomer teaches them how telescopes work and how the telescope has changed from Galileo's modified spyglass - using two small pieces of glass - to the huge, space and land-based devices of today, like National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Hubble Space Telescope.

All shows last one hour unless otherwise noted. Each show includes a live "sky tonight" portion.

Showing on October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31.

Please note that interested parties are encouraged to book their seats in advance due to the USC Aiken following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for social distancing. Seats are disinfected between shows and visitors are required to wear masks.
