SUNY Oswego Planetarium To Explore ‘Stars of Summer’

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

Dr. Scott Roby, director of the college’s planetarium, will point out the bright stars and constellations visible on summer evenings and give a light-hearted version of some of the mythological tales behind the constellations, including Cygnus the Swan and Delphinus the Dolphin. Star maps will be provided.

Sunday’s free shows take place 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.
