Description

Family Night at the Framingham State University Planetarium presents:

THE NIGHT SKY: YOURS TO DISCOVER

The night sky has been a source of wonder and inspiration throughout human history. The development of the telescope, over 400 years ago, allowed us to peer deeper into the heavens than ever before. Since then, telescopes have undergone tremendous technological advances, but one thing hasn’t changed: the simple joy of looking up at the night sky, surrounded by family and friends. This month, the FSU planetarium will get you started on your personal journey of discovery. First we’ll watch the fulldome film Two Small Pieces of Glass: The Amazing Telescope. This family-friendly film will take you on journey through history from the first telescopes, made of just “two small pieces of glass,” to the technological marvels used by scientists today. Next, we’ll take a look at what’s visible in our night sky tonight. Afterwards, you’ll be eager to head outside and start making your own discoveries!

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