Planetarium examines 2012 Doomsday

Planetarium examines 2012 Doomsday

2012 Doomsday: Predicting an End, or Just a Cycle? begins Nov. 25 at WKU’s Hardin Planetarium. Show times are 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through Dec. 23. Admission is free and the 40-minute program is suitable for all ages. Note that the show will begin on time, with no late entrance permitted.

About the show: Some say the Mayas predicted the end of the world on Dec. 21. This interactive presentation takes a light-hearted look at the many “prophecies” and alarmist warnings which claim to know how the world will end, if any of them could be right, and how this craze all got started in the first place.

  • Sunday            Nov. 25      2 p.m.
  • Tuesday          Nov. 27     7 p.m.
  • Thursday        Nov. 29        7 p.m.
  • Sunday            Dec. 2       2 p.m.
  • Tuesday          Dec. 4         7 p.m.
  • Thursday        Dec. 6          7 p.m.
  • Sunday           Dec. 9         2 p.m.
  • Tuesday          Dec. 11         7 p.m.
