Starlab Planetarium!

Learn to find your way around the autumn night sky with the Big Dipper, Orion the Mighty Hunter and the Square of Pegasus! Learn about the largest and brightest Full Moon of the year to light up the night on Oct. 25-26! Presently, Venus shines as the brightest star-like point of light in the dawn and predawn sky, and Jupiter beams as the most brilliant star-like object in the early evening sky. The gem of all the solar system worlds, the ringed planet Saturn, rises shortly before morning dawn! Moreover, the normally reclusive planet Mercury will be presenting one of its best apparitions in the morning sky this November!
