BRANCHBURG NJ - The Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium in Branchburg will present a variety of star shows and laser concerts for all ages in March. The following shows will be offered:

The Little Star that Could, Saturdays, March 5, 12, 19, 3 p.m.

Travel with an average yellow star on his quest to get a “name” and a planet to call his own. A “cool” red star, a “hot” blue star, a dying star, double stars and the Milky Way Galaxy teach Little Star some important things about being a star. Imagine Little Star’s surprise when he discovers that several planets rotate around him. The show offers a great introduction to the different kinds of stars in space, as well as the planets in our solar system. (Recommended for ages 6-12)

The show takes full advantage of the RVCC Planetarium’s AllDome High Definition digital projection system.

Is there one on Earth’s horizon? (Recommended for ages 8 to adult)
