November and December
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6pm - Throughout all of November and December we will be bringing back our wildly popular live show and telescope combination. With the Sun setting in the early evening, come to the Planetarium to learn what's in the current night sky, and then head outside with several of our telescopes to view them yourself. If the weather is bad (clouds, rain, or snow) then the telescopes will have to be cancelled for that night. You can follow us on Twitter (@ODUplanetarium) for last minute notifications about any telescope cancellations.
