CPS Planetarium October public shows (Posted 10/01/15)
The second Saturday in October brings a new show to the CPS Planetarium, as well as a returning favorite.
The new show is 3,000 Years of Stargazing, an engaging look back at many of the astronomical discoveries that explain the universe we know today. From Stonehenge and Machu Picchu to the Hubble Space Telescope and telescopes that aren't even built yet, visitors will come away with a fresh appreciation of our astronomical heritage. 3,000 Years of Stargazing will be shown at 3:15 p.m. and is geared toward ages 12 and up.
The 2:00 show will be Secret of the Cardboard Rocket (for ages 7-12). Join a brother and sister as they explore the solar system onboard a cardboard rocket.
A constellation tour is included in each presentation.
