NOC to Host Planetarium Show on May 2


NOC Enid will present the May Planetarium show in the Mackie Planetarium.

The show is set for Thursday, May 2 at 7 p.m. Planetarium Director Fritz Osell will project the night sky over Enid and and highlight some prominent constellations.

Osell gave a statement regarding the show.

“Thousands of planetary systems have been found in our neighborhood of the galaxy,” Osell said. “Discovery of new planetary systems is largely a result of the combination of advanced telescopes like the James Webb space telescope with the rapid advancement of computer technology.”

The night will begin with a full-dome story for children titled “The Little Star That Could.” The story is based around a star who is looking for planets.

Attendance is free but non-perishable foods are accepted. All proceeds will go to Our Daily Bread and Loves and Fishes.
