Robinson Planetarium Features Fall Shows

ADRIAN, MI – Adrian Colleges announces the fall show line up to be held in Robinson Planetarium on the campus of the college. This month the shows will explore the relationships between Earth, Moon, and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions.

Native American stories are used throughout the show to help distinguish between myths and science. Learn why the Sun rises and sets and the basics of fusion and solar energy. Examine the Moon’s orbit, craters, phases and eclipses. The show is appropriate for families and elementary school children.

Shows will be held on the following Fridays at 7:00 PM:

October 5th

October 12th

November 9th

November 16th

Admission to each event is free. The Robinson Planetarium is located in Peelle Hall on the Adrian College campus. Group reservations and special showings can be arranged by contacting Mark Fairclough at or via phone at (517) 265-5161 Ext. 4788.
