‘Finding Your Way Around the Autumn Sky’ coming up at Hardin Planetarium

Finding Your Way Around the Autumn Sky will begin Sept. 18 at WKU’s Hardin Planetarium.

The planetarium’s star projector will be used in this program to examine the patterns in the stars of the Autumn Sky. As the patterns are identified, some of the stories that the ancients associated with these patterns will be shared. In addition, some of the bright stars, planets and other celestial objects of interest in the fall’s evening sky will be discussed.
