Here’s more fun things to do in Glassboro, New Jersey.
Big Astronomy: People, Places, Discoveries
To study the vastness of space, you need extra-large equipment. Explore Chile’s giant telescopes and meet the people behind the lenses in the Edelman Planetarium’s newest planetarium show. In Big Astronomy: People, Places, Discoveries, journey to three world-class observatories in Chile’s rugged Andes Mountains and arid Atacama Desert—remote, extreme regions that happen to have the perfect conditions for astronomical research. Along the way, you’ll meet an inspiring cast of astronomers, engineers, technicians, and support staff who keep these mega-machines running.
During this 1-hour program, we will point out which planets and constellations will be visible in the night sky.
