Willimantic, Conn— Sky watchers from Eastern Connecticut State University’s student body and staff, as well as members of the public, enjoyed the last of the entertaining and educational star shows that the Eastern Planetarium will host this semester. Professor Russell Sampson, with the help of one of his astronomy students, gave a presentation on the history of the discovery of our solar system as well as former planet Pluto. As always, the question and answer session at the end lent itself to an engaging and in-depth discussion.
There will be more shows next semester at the Robert K. Wickware Planetarium, Eastern’s teaching and presentation planetarium. Shows are free to everyone. Seating is limited so those wishing to attend should reserve their seat by calling the Planetarium at (860) 465-5300.
