SUNY Oswego Planetarium To Present ‘Stars of Winter’

OSWEGO — The SUNY Oswego planetarium will present “The Stars of Winter” at 7 p.m. Dec. 4, 11 and 18.

The planetarium’s director, Dr. Scott Roby of the college’s physics department, will point out the bright stars and constellations visible in early winter evenings and give a light-hearted version of some of the mythological tales behind the constellations.

Attendees can view Orion and the Gemini Twins. 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.

No food or drink is permitted in the facility.

Children 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

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