SUNY Oswego Planetarium To Explore Celestial Calendar

OSWEGO — The SUNY Oswego planetarium will present “The Stars of Spring” at 7 p.m. each Sunday during March.

Visitors will learn the bright stars and constellations in Oswego’s spring sky with Dr. Scott Roby, the planetarium’s director.

Roby said visitors will see the Big and Little Bears, Draco the Dragon and Leo the Lion, as well as witness the strange disappearance of the bright star Regulus three years ago.

Star maps will be provided.

Sunday shows will continue through June with changing topics each month in the state-of-the-art facility on the second floor of the Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation.

The planetarium has limited seating, so guests are encouraged to arrive a bit early.

Shows are recommended for children ages 4 and older.

Children 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

No food or drink is permitted in the facility.

Parking is free in the commuter lot off Washington Boulevard and the employee lot off Centennial Boulevard across from the Shineman Center.
