June 2018 Planetarium Schedule

Greetings from the Robinson Planetarium at Adrian College:

Below is the schedule for June 2018. 

Star Talk: The Summer Skies

As we approach the Summer Solstice, the summer constellations are rising higher in the sky each day. Brightly shining constellations include Scorpius and Sagittarius.  The Summer Triangle, which encompasses three constellations, is also soon to be a prominent feature high in the sky.  Several planets will adorn the evening skies.  Jupiter blazes in the evening sky and Mars and Saturn will rise in the later evening hours. Venus will be visible for only a short time just after nightfall.  Join us for a live star talk that will explore

the summer constellations and visible planets as well as the folklore associated with them.

Friday June 15 at 7:00 PM

Flight Adventures

Discover the science of flight through the eyes of a young girl and her grandfather as they explore how birds, kites, planes, and models fly.  In this Fulldome planetarium show, you will journey through the history of flight and into the future to learn how NASA is discovering new and safer ways to travel with the help of future engineers and aviators.
