ASU Planetarium "Secret Life of Stars" Show
The Angelo State University Planetarium will present two full-dome public astronomy shows during its 2018 holiday schedule, beginning Thursday, Nov. 29, in the Vincent Building, 2333 Vanderventer St. “Secret Lives of Stars” will run at 8 p.m. All the shows are open to the public with admission prices of $3 for adults and $2 for children, active military and senior citizens. ASU students, faculty and staff are admitted free.
“Secret Lives of Stars” illustrates for audiences how some stars are massive while others are tiny and almost insignificant. The specific characteristics of a star determine what type of life it will lead and how long it might live. The program also reveals unsuspected hidden aspects, such as multiple-star systems in gravitational embraces, stars so bloated that they shed layers of gas into the expanse of space, and stellar time bombs just waiting to go off at any time. Audiences will witness the amazing variety of stars and peer into their secret lives. The program is narrated by award-winning actor Patrick Stewart.
