From the Robinson Planetarium in Adrian:

With the frosty evenings of fall upon us and the celebration of All Hallows Eve near, the winged horse Pegasus and Andromeda are high in the sky and Saturn, the jewel of the heavens, is low on the western horizon.  Later in the evening, brilliant winter constellations begin to rise in the east.  In the early morning hours, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Mars are visible low in the eastern sky.  Join us for a live star talk to learn about the constellations and planets that are visible in October.

Get up close and personal to nature’s most powerful and extreme forces. Cameras capture erupting volcanoes, devastating earthquakes, and powerful storms as a team of scientists travel the world in an attempt to figure out what causes these dangerous, yet undeniably thrilling natural occurrences. Putting their lives on the line in the name of scientific discovery, these experts forge their way through volcanic flows, along treacherous fault
lines, and in cars heading straight into a raging tornado.

Shows will be on the following Fridays at 7:00 p.m.:
