Free Star Party on April 8 at Ingram Planetarium

Ingram Planetarium will host a free program at 7 pm on April 8, 2016, called “Find Your Way in the Sky.” Learn about the endless wonders of the April cosmos during a live star show inside the planetarium’s dome theater, then step outside and discover these celestial sights for yourself using the planetarium’s telescopes. Trained staff will be available to show you how the telescopes work and direct you to the more interesting astronomical sights.

The indoor guided tour of the night sky, including a brief explanation of the telescopes available for observation, will begin at 7 pm inside Ingram Planetarium’s full-dome theater. After sunset, you will have the opportunity to step outside and gaze at a selection of the night sky’s offerings through a variety of telescopes. Outdoor observing is estimated to begin at approximately 8 pm.

In case of inclement weather, the free star party will be rescheduled for April 10 at 7 pm.
