'Two Small Pieces of Glass' opens Feb. 12 at Hardin Planetarium

Two Small Pieces of Glass, an experience that combines a 360-degree immersive “full dome” movie with interactive demonstrations introducing how telescopes help us learn of our place in the cosmos, opens Feb. 12 at WKU’s Hardin Planetarium.

Show times are 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through March 24. 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: The movie follows two teenage students who attend a star party. While looking through the astronomer’s telescope, the students, along with the planetarium audience, explore Jupiter’s moons, Saturn’s rings, spiral structure of galaxies and how the largest observatories in the world use these telescopes to explore the mysteries of the universe. Together we learn telescopes work and how the telescope has helped us understand our place in space and how telescopes continue to expand our understanding of the universe.

  • Tuesday, Feb. 12, 7 p.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 14, 7 p.m.
