Planets in Our Solar System and Beyond!

Mountains Silhouetted Against Dusk Fading to Starry Sky
Main Library
Tuesday, June 24 - 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Have you ever heard about "exoplanets"? They are planets outside the solar system and there are about 1800 of them! Summer Reading Club participants and their families are invited to a special presentation about our solar system at the Allen Planetarium at South Vigo High School by the planetarium director, Holly Hudson. She will also show us the night sky and share new information on the "exoplanets." The first show is from 3:00-4:00 p.m. and the second is 6:30-7:30 p.m. Admittance is free, but everyone must have a ticket since space is limited. Please visit Youth Services or West Branch to pick up your tickets.
