Dr. Herrmann will present an overview of the capabilities of the Penn State Mont Alto portable planetarium, with digital projection and an inflatable dome that seats roughly 45 adults.

The digital planetarium can simulate the day or night sky from anywhere on earth. Some aspects that may be explored are well-known solar system objects, like our moon and the planets, as well as constellations and recognized patterns of stars that are frequently named for mythological figures in various cultures.

Visitors will have the option of watching a full-dome video on various astronomy topics.

Questions about the astronomical wonders in the sky, our solar system, and beyond are welcome.

This show is recommended for ages 5 and up.

Feel free to bring a camping or beach chair or perhaps even a pillow to sit on. Standard folding chairs and some foam floor mats should also be available.

Planetarium Show is given in the Multipurpose Activities Center (MAC) on Penn State Mont Alto Campus.
