Wesleyan announces planetarium shows for January and February

Buckhannon, W.Va. — West Virginia Wesleyan College’s planetarium will feature two shows in February.  The 40-seat planetarium is located on the second floor of the Christopher Hall of Science and features a Digitarium Zeta digital projector that is capable of full-dome videos.  

Each show begins at 8 p.m. and includes a tour of the evening sky and free sky charts. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for students and senior citizens, and free for children under the age of 18 when accompanied by an adult.

The schedule is as follows:

Feb. 1 – Larry Cat in Space

The show is a playful, imaginative cartoon about an inquisitive cat who takes a trip to the moon.

February 15 – Space Park 360 Infinity

This show features full dome theme park rides, such as roller coasters, that whip you around the Sun, through Saturn’s rings, and event to a distant exoplanet.

In addition to these shows, Wesleyan offers free planetarium shows for school and educational groups.  Corporate functions, civic groups, and other special showings can be arranged at a cost of $50.
