For academic purposes, the summer is almost upon us. In this last public show of the 2014-15 academic year, we will look ahead to the sights of the skies expected in summer 2015, as well as recent and upcoming astronomy news. The news will feature, naturally, the New Horizons probe and its July 2015 flyby of Pluto.
As always, these shows are free and open to the public. The Hatter Planetarium is located in Masters Hall, Room 115, on the Gettysburg College campus. Thanks to our wonderful, graduating student presenter, Annie Skrabak, who will be presenting the Sunday show.
