Valdosta, Georgia - August 10, 2011
Valdosta State's planetarium now has a new projector, to simulate flying through the solar system.
Viewers can now see Mars, the moon and several sky scenes from south Georgia to faraway lands.
"We might travel back in time over 2,000 years to show what happened in the sky before the star Bethlehem," says Ken Rumstay, an astrology professor at VSU. "We could imagine traveling in the future or could simulate flying to a distant galaxy."
The shows are free for school children and can be set-up with VSU's Event Services Office at (229) 333-5998.
