NACOGDOCHES, Texas — The planetarium in Stephen F. Austin State University’s Cole STEM Building will offer two shows on Saturdays starting Dec. 7.

The planetarium has public shows every Saturday with group shows available throughout the week upon reservation.

“The Secrets of Gravity – In the Footsteps of Albert Einstein” will be presented at 3 p.m., and tickets are $3. Geared toward children but open to all ages, the show takes viewers on a journey through space and time to learn about gravity.

“Solar Superstorms” is scheduled for 4:30 and 7 p.m. Tickets to this show are $6 for adults and $4 for children, students, and faculty and staff with ID.

“This show contains some of the best visualizations of the inner workings of the sun that I’ve ever seen,” said Ed Michaels, planetarium director. “Brace yourself for the onslaught of the next solar superstorm.”

The shows will be offered weekly through Jan. 25, except for Dec. 28 through Jan. 4.
