Denison Planetarium Shows Will Feature 'April Skies'
Posted: March 30, 2001
If showers are keeping the outdoor sky view cloudy, community members will still be able to view "April Skies" by attending the star shows at 7, 7:45 or 8:20 p.m. on Thursday (April 12) in the planetarium in Denison's Olin Science Hall. All three shows will present the stars seen in the April sky.
Lauren Jones, assistant professor of physics and the director of Swasey Observatory, will host the star shows with assistance from Denison physics students.
The Denison planetarium contains a Zeiss ZKP3 state-of-the-art planetarium projector. This instrument is housed in an 8-meter dome and is controlled by a computer.
Seating is available for 35 persons per showing. No reservations are needed for these free presentations.
