Through the magic of the digital projection facilities of the URI Planetarium, we will be brought back to the mythical ages, when gods and goddesses came down from the sky and watched over us. See the motions of the sky, from season to season, and millennium to millennium, yet always constant and beautiful.
A Starry Tale will follow “Losing the Dark“, a six-minute introduction to light trespass and its potential consequences; after the main program, you will be shown the Stars over the URI Campus, a live presentation introducing the seasonal constellations visible at this time.
Admission is only $5.00, to benefit the University of Rhode Island planetarium fund.
The University of Rhode Island Planetarium is located on Upper College Road, on the Kingston campus, across from the Art Center.
The University of Rhode Island Planetarium is available for programming for schools and other organizations. For more information, please contact Francine Jackson at 401-527-5558.
