Planetarium Boosters Plan Another Night of Shows

Astronomy buffs of all ages will get another chance to enjoy a night of stargazing at the David M. Brown Planetarium (1426 North Quincy Street).  After the success of July’s first “Night at the Planetarium,” the Friends of the Planetarium will be hosting “Night at the Planetarium 2” on Saturday.

The program will start at 3:00 p.m. with a “Solar System Tour” for ages 3 and up, followed by a show called “Hubble Vision II” for ages 8 and up.

From 5:00 to 9:30 p.m., space fans will be able to look at real stars thanks to a collection of telescopes that will be set up outside the planetarium.

The Friends suggest a donation of $5 per individual or $10 per family, which will go toward the group’s effort to renovate the 40-year-old planetarium.
