Description

Family Night at the Framingham State University Planetarium presents:

Oasis in Space

Celebrate another trip around the Sun with your neighbors in the Solar System! We’ll begin with a screening a of Oasis in Space. This popular fulldome film has inspired thousands of visitors with a message that has stood the test of time: water is our most precious resource, and without it, life on Earth would not be possible. But is Earth unique in the Solar System, or are there other worlds that harbor water, and even life? You’ll explore this question as you visit several Solar System destinations including the Moon, Mars, Jupiter and even Pluto! After the film, we’ll take a look at our current night sky to see what planets will be visible from your backyard tonight. We’ll also discuss some current astronomical events including the upcoming lunar eclipse, and the latest news from the New Horizons mission.

Fulldome Film: yes • Live Planetarium Content: yes • Guest Speaker: no
