Planetarium's June shows to explore 'Stars of Summer'


May 17, 2018

The SUNY Oswego planetarium will explore "The Stars of Summer" at 7 p.m. every Sunday during June.

Planetarium director Dr. Scott Roby of Oswego's physics faculty will point out the bright stars and constellations visible in summer evenings and give a light-hearted version of some of the mythological tales behind the constellations, including Cygnus the Swan and Delphinus the Dolphin. Star maps will be provided.

Sunday shows take place October through June with changing topics each month in the state-of-the-art facility on the second floor of the Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation.

The planetarium has limited seating, so guests are encouraged to arrive a bit early. Shows are recommended for children ages 4 and older. Children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult. No food or drink is permitted in the facility.

Parking is free in the commuter lot off Washington Boulevard and the employee lot off Centennial Boulevard across from Shineman Center.
