In addition to the planetarium features being shown this fall, Bays Mountain Park is also announcing its solar viewing program and StarWatch events for this fall. These family-friendly events are free to the public and held throughout the months of October and November.
“SEEING!” follows a photon’s creation and journey across the galaxy to a young stargazer’s eye. You’ll be able to follow the photon into the girl’s eye, learning the structures of the eye and their functions, prior to taking a ride on the optic nerve.
“Out There – The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds” will be shown through April at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on the weekends and at 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. “A Part of the Sky Called Orion” also starts this month and will be shown at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through April.
