Families are invited to explore constellations, the sky’s connect-the-dots, at Lake Erie Nature & Science Center’s Family Astronomy Day. On Saturday, April 25, guests will enjoy a planetarium show created especially for this event as well as several hands-on activities throughout the Center.

“We love our Family Astronomy Days,” says Catherine Timko, the Center’s executive director. “They give parents, grandparents and children of all ages a wonderful opportunity to learn and explore together.”

Activities and planetarium shows will be running from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $4/person for those ages two and older and include the planetarium program as well as all activities. Advance registration is available through the Center’s website,www.lensc.org, but is not required.

The Walter R. Schuele Planetarium at the Center was completely transformed last year and reopened to the public in June 2014. Upon reopening, programming was expanded and now includes Family Astronomy Days each quarter. Past events were very well-received and highlighted the moon, sun and galaxies.
