Kimberly Herrmann, associate professor in physics and astronomy, will share some of the capabilities of the Penn State Mont Alto portable planetarium, which features 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. Well-known solar-system objects, like the moon and planets, are among the topics to be explored, along with constellations — 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, solar system and beyond are welcome. The shows are recommended for ages 5 and older. Consecutive shows might be similar.

Feel free to bring a camping or beach chair, or a pillow, on which to sit. Standard folding chairs and foam floor mats should be available.
