“Tuesday’s show is inspired by the winter solstice,” said Amy Truksa, director of the planetarium. “The first half will focus on the rhythm of the seasons, followed up with a discussion of constellations and planets visible in the evening and how to identify them.”
Due to popular demand, tonight's show, which begins at 7 p.m., was added to schedule.
“Annually, we have over 100 shows a year, nine to 12 of which are public shows,” Truksa said. “We typically host one public show per month, nine to 10 months of the year—September-December, February-June or July.”
Reservations are required and can be made by calling Kinga Britschgi at 208-459-5211. Admission is $5 for adults and $2.50 for children ages 3-17. For more information about the planetarium, visit collegeofidaho.edu/planetarium.
