About this event

What planets and other celestial objects await your discovery tonight? In this program you will learn how to identify current planets and constellations; all visible from your backyard! No telescope needed; just inquisitive minds.

The Edinboro University Planetarium, under the direction of Dr. David Hurd, invites you to join him as we “Zoom” into the night sky.  Using an innovative desk-top planetarium, Hurd uses unique teaching techniques to highlight significant viewing opportunities in northwest Pennsylvania. No telescope is needed, just inquisitive minds. 

The Edinboro University Planetarium provides enrichment activities to thousands of school children and the public each year.  Although current situations do not allow a personal visit to the Edinboro University Planetarium, Dr. Hurd continues to bring the universe within reach of tomorrow’s America by providing family friendly astronomy programs. 

To schedule your virtual field trip, call (814) 732-2493 or email dhurd@edinboro.edu.
