Fall 2019 Public Show Schedule

Hatter Planetarium, Masters Hall

We are excited to announce another semester of public shows at the Hatter Planetarium! There are a couple of important changes that we hope will make it easier to attend.

ASTRO AFTERNOONS. Twice a month during the academic year we will offer an afternoon of four shows. A typical schedule will look like this:

  • 1:00 The Sky this Month LIVE
  • 2:00 Recorded Show (e.g., “Oasis in Space”)
  • 3:00 Recorded Show
  • 4:00 The Sky this Month LIVE

Weekday Showings of The Sky this Month, 12:00 Noon. We are adding a second Thursday at noon showing to this program. Since we will be repeating “The Sky This Month” at six showings on four dates, note that repeated presentations of this program in the same month will include minor updates for sky position on the current date but otherwise will be substantially the same. Breaking astronomy news will be held for the next month’s show.
