ISU Planetarium presents Moles: What Is Out There?
The Illinois State University Planetarium is pleased to offer the children’s show “Moles: What Is Out There?,” on Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10. This is a single weekend event and will not be offered again. Show times for this charming full-dome video presentation are Friday at 7:30 PM and Saturday at 2 and 7:30 PM.
“Moles” revolves around a young mole named Plato, who lives deep underground in a dark burrow full of mystery and surprises together with his mom and dad. Plato is a restless, curious and thoughtful. Fascinated by the light that penetrates the entrance to his home, Plato decides to explore the outside world with his best friends Alfa, Beta and Gamma. It’s a good thing that the professor Socrates keeps an eye on our young friends as sometimes things can get a little out of hand!
After “Moles” we’ll take a tour of the current evening sky, exploring many highlights including the bright stars, constellations, and planets visible from Central Illinois.
Admission to the Illinois State University Planetarium is $4 for adults, $3 for children ages 5-12 and seniors, and $2 for children ages 3-4. Free parking for the Planetarium is available a short distance away in the University’s red-tag F-67 lot, located on the east side of School Street.
