Planetarium to present Sunday shows

The Charles H. Jerred Planetarium at SUNY Oswego will host free shows for the public each Sunday in April and May.

The shows will begin at 7 p.m. Sundays in Room 332 of Piez Hall at the corner of Centennial Drive and Takamine Street on campus. Visitors can park for free at the Snygg Hall parking lot across the street from Piez Hall. The doors of Piez Hall will open at 6:30 p.m.

The planetarium seats only 30 people, so admission is first come, first served. Due to the nature of planetarium shows, no admission will be allowed once the show is in progress. The show will last a little under an hour, with a different show offered each month. 

Shows are suitable for the entire family, though organizers recommend that children be age 4 or older.

Aside from the weekly public shows, groups of 10 people or more can contact the planetarium director to arrange free shows at other times.

For more information or to schedule group visits of 10 or more people, call 343-4294.
