UNO would like to invite you to a planetarium show involving a discussion and a star simulated presentation of the seasonal constellations present in our skies.

“What’s Up” programs feature seasonal constellations, mythology and star patterns that are visible during the current season. Discussion includes our Sun, Moon, and other planets. Additional topics include active spacecraft operating within our solar system.

The event is priced at $4/person at the door. Doors open about 20 min. prior to the show.  Open parking for the weekend starts at 5 pm on Fridays at the Durham Science Center at UNO. See our website for information.

The first show will be at 6:30 on Friday the 4th of January and will last approximately 1 hour, though there will be a a second showing at 8:00 p.m. as well
