Zacheis Planetarium presents "A Change in Time"

(09-15-2010)

The Adams State College Zacheis Planetarium and Observatory is presenting "A Change in Time" at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 23; Friday, Sept. 24; and Saturday, Sept. 25. The events are free and open to the public. No reservations required.

"A Change in Time" will explore the autumnal equinox, both in terms of today's astronomy and its importance to ancient cultures. The presentation concludes with using the planetarium's star projector to tour the autumn night skies and its brighter constellations. The format of the presentation allows for questions and discussion.

The door will open at 6:30 p.m. but will be locked once the show begins. The presentation will last about 1 hour. If the weather permits, the audience is invited to use the observatory's telescopes following the presentation.

The planetarium is a white domed building near the southeast corner of the main campus in Alamosa. If you have questions, please email Dr. Randy Emmons, emeritus professor of physics, at rwemmons@adams.edu, or call 719.587.7256 during normal business hours.
