A look at the RMSC

January 26, 2009

There are currently some astronomy opportunities at the Rochester Museum & Science Center that are out of this world:


  1. The Strasenburgh Planetarium is currently featuring a star show series entitled, “The Wonders of Orion“. Each week a new star is featured under the big dome, including star clusters and nebulas that Hubble and other telescopes have found in Orion’s neighborhood. Each show includes a point-out of stars, constellations and planets you can see in the current night sky.Check the Planetarium’s website for a list of showtimes.
  2. The museum’s Education department is offering an entire week of Space-based activities for students ages 6-11. The camp takes place during the week of February break (February 16-20). Visit the museum’s website for more information about this break camp.
