See the heavens at UNCG planetarium

011613Feature_PlanetariumThe planetarium shows at UNCG are very popular. Only a handful remain (at press time) for February’s viewing, for example.

If you – and friends or family members – want to attend one of the free monthly shows this semester, it’s wise to plan ahead and make reservations.

The public planetarium shows for the spring are Feb. 22, March 23, April 26 and May 24. Each show is at 7:30 p.m. on the third floor of Petty Building, Room 310.

Guests may request tickets at physics.uncg.edu/planetarium/tickets.php
