HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Three free showings of the family-friendly film “Earth, Moon and Sun” are scheduled for Saturday at Northern Kentucky University.
The film, an NKU production voted best full-dome presentation at the 2009 conference of the Digistar planetariums, will be shown at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, June 16 in the NKU Haile Digital Planetarium.
The show is a look at the earth, moon and sun system and how it has influenced life on earth. Watch as the moon forms, visit places that could be the origin of life, learn about the phases of the moon and seasons and see eclipses.
Those interested in attending Saturday's viewings should contact NKU Community Connections at (859) 572-5600 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve seats. There will be no parking charge for those attending Saturday's showings.
The NKU Haile Digital Planetarium opened in 2007 and is the home of the world's first laser-projection planetarium for classroom use. It is used by the Department of Physics and Geology for astronomy classes and is dedicated to outreach programs for local schools and community organizations.
