Spring 2016 Hatter Planetarium Schedule

UPDATE: Show Sunday 1/24 is cancelled! We are going to stay out of the way while Facilities gets the campus ready for Monday. Stay safe!

It’s that time of year. The spring semester is underway and once again we look forward to presenting a monthly sky show in the Hatter Planetarium. Here are two notes about the schedule. First, we’ll be doing just one show a month. This seems to fit our audience size the beast, and additionally we have a project in the works that we hope to be able to share with you soon. Second, all shows are on a Sunday at 4:00 PM, except for the one on Sunday, May 1, which is now scheduled for 5:00 PM. This is because your humble planetarium director will be giving a final exam until 4:30, and he really does not want to miss that last show of the year!

We hope to see you for our first show of the semester, this Sunday, January 24, at 4:00 PM. We hope the potential weekend snow is off the sidewalks and parking lots by then. We will be talking about winter stars in the evening sky, planets in the morning sky, and looking ahead to the astronomical highlights of 2016.

You can also see the schedule as a PDF and a Google calendar.
