  Star Talk: The Winter Sky

This live planetarium program will feature the Winter and Spring constellations and planets. Friday, March 7 at 7:00 PM   Dinosaur Prophecy The Dinosaur Prophecy will take you back to a time when the world was a very different place and dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Digitally recreated dinosaurs such as the Coelophysis, Allosaurus, the feathered Sinornithosaurus, T. Rex and Triceratops will seem to come to life on the planetarium dome.  You will learn how scientists use dinosaur bones and tracks to determine how they lived and died.  Their work shows that many of the dinosaurs simply disappeared whereas the remainder roamed the planet until the massive extinction 65 million years ago.  This adventure into how dinosaurs survived and thrived until the final extinction 65 million years ago is sure to be a favorite for the entire family.
