Clarion University Department of Physics will once again show the holiday planetarium show, "Season of Light.”
The festive, 40-minute show traces the development of many of the world's most endearing holiday customs, from the burning Yule log, sparkling Christmas tree lights and candles in windows, to the lighting of luminarias in the American Southwest and the traditional ritual of the Hanukkah Menorah. All of this will take place under the splendor of the winter sky. For those with young children, fear not, nothing will be disclosed concerning the man in the red suit.
There will be five showings:
7 p.m. Nov. 29
7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Dec. 6
7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Dec. 13
The show is free and open to the public. There are no tickets or reservations. The doors will open for the first showing at 6:30 p.m., and no one will be allowed entry once the shows begin. The planetarium holds approximately 65 people, so arriving 20 minutes early is recommended.
The planetarium, which is wheelchair accessible, is on the second floor of the Joseph P. Grunenwald Center for Science and Technology. Parking is available in Lot 12, behind Marwick-Boyd Fine Arts Center, and Lot 11, across the street from Waldo S. Tippin Gymnasium. The best way to access the planetarium is through the main entrance of the Science and Technology Center on Greenville Avenue. For more information, contact Sharon Montgomery, 814-393-1899.
