Seeing stars at Rockland library
Rockland — The Northern Stars Traveling Inflatable Planetarium will come to the Rockland Public Library on Saturday, July 14 at 10:30 a.m. for two shows (sign up at the library).
The first show is Our Family in the Sky for the young ones. The planets are personified as Mr. Sun guides the children through a tour of the solar system. The program includes planets, comets, asteroids, the moon and constellations.
The second show, Earth—Our Place in the Cosmos, is aimed at anyone from 8 to 98. Learn about the earth/sun connection and how that creates the water cycle that is vital for life. Examine the moon and its phases, rotation and revolution. Discover that the entire solar system is part of a huge galaxy of stars called the Milky Way. Looking beyond the Milky Way, there are thousands of other galaxies as well. The audience will discover that Earth is a small place in a vast, constantly moving universe.
Northern Stars Planetarium shares the wonders of the universe. For more information call Rockland Public Library at 594-0310. This program is made possible with funds from the Cornerstones of Science.
