ASHEBORO – Step into a space, journey through the solar system and meet Earth’s closest celestial neighbors on Thursday, November 15, at the Asheboro Public Library.
All ages are invited to free sky shows at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. in a StarLab Portable Planetarium set up in the central part of the library. The planetarium holds 6-8 people; multiple presentations of the 10-minute show will take place at each scheduled time if necessary to accommodate all attendees.
Abbreviated shows also will take place between scheduled showings.
The StarLab, an 11-foot-high by 16-foot-diameter inflatable dome, is on loan from the State Library of North Carolina, which has made four of the portable planetariums available around the state. A laptop/projector system displays the sky show and guides viewers through the program.
The StarLab will leave Asheboro for its next library location in a few weeks.
The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 336-318-6803.
