Fall 2015 Shows Announced

Hatter Planetarium in 1966

The Hatter Planetarium opened in June of 1966, making this our 50th year of operation. We’ll plan some commemoration in the spring as we get close to the anniversary itself. In the meantime, visit us and enjoy a live talk in a vintage optical-mechanical  planetarium while you still can!

In our fall schedule, we will be concentrating on our long-running “Sky this Month” series, which offer a monthly look at the current starry sky, upcoming astronomical events, and review and explanation of recent astronomy news. 

In September that will mean a look back to the exciting encounter of New Horizons with Pluto and a look ahead to the locally visible total lunar eclipse on the night of Sept 27-28.

Here is our schedule of Fall shows. All are free and open to the public. You can also get the schedule as a PDF document and a google calendar file.
