We are looking forward to a full spring semester of free shows at the Hatter Planetarium. First up, Astro-Afternoon on Sunday, January 26. Here are some further details of what to expect:

Typical ASTRO AFTERNOON Schedule

  • 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

Between shows we will play astronomy-related podcasts in the dome. Check our website for titles of the 2:00 and 3:00 shows as dates approach.

“The Sky this Month” is a timely live presentation on upcoming celestial events and astronomy news. 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.

The Hatter Planetarium is located in Masters Hall, Room 115, on the Gettysburg College Campus. Shows are free and all are welcome as seats remain. No admittance while a show is running.

The schedule is also available via the College’s events calendar and as a PDF.
