The Illinois State University Planetarium will offer the children’s show The Little Star that Could at 7:30 p.m. Friday, September 30, and at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, October 1.  This is a single weekend event and will not be offered again.

The show follows a rather average star as it takes a journey through the Milky Way Galaxy in search of planets and discovers that by being very average, it is actually special.  After Little Star Planetarium staff will give a tour of the current evening sky under the Planetarium dome, exploring the bright stars, constellations, and planets visible from Central Illinois.

Admission to the Illinois State University Planetarium is $4 for adults, $3 for children ages 5-12 and seniors, and $2 for children ages 3-4. For more information, please call the Planetarium’s Skyline at (309) 438-5007 or visit the Planetarium website.
