The Planetarium at Snow College launched a show on Sept. 16 called Moons: The World’s Mystery. At the beginning of the show, the professor who directed the event presented through the projectors how the sky looked, as well as the moon and the constellations more visible here in Ephraim. The Milky Way and some fall constellations were projected at the show. Such as The summer triangle that is formed by Aquila, Lyra, and Cygnus. An interesting fact given at the show  is that the constellation Cygnus is a representation of the myth of Zeus and Leda in Greek mythology. There were around 17 students at the event, and the visuals were accurate.

A planetarium is well known as a “Sky theater”, which is a simulation of how the sky looks like on a hemispheric dome ceiling used as a screen. The chairs give students a comfortable view position and rotation. The title of the show speaks by itself  World’s Mystery There are many things about the sky that are still a mystery and some of the things that were presented at the show were unbelievable. Astronomy is a discipline that helps you understand where we came from and the most important elements in earth. Astronomy is a way to look at the universe from a different perspective. From this perspective, you can gain a sense of motion and understand our planet using physics. There are certain phenomena that cannot be viewed from a ground level. It is amazing to learn how even asteroids have moons. One of the students that attended the show said “The Planetarium is really cool. I didn’t know there were so many different types of moons, and I thought it was really interesting how much moons can affect the planets they orbit” (Mia Topham.) Many students seemed surprised that Jupiter has around 65 moons and one of them called Europa has an entire ocean on it. 

 Therefore, having the resources available can provide an extension of knowledge in the subject.  “Here at our college”everyone has the opportunity to assist and be part of these events and it is also a very clear form of entertainment that can provide extensive research and knowledge about our planet that you haven’t seen before. 

The shows will always be listed in the Snow College website, under the calendar tab. The tickets can be found online as well. The events will take place at the Graham Science Building for anyone interested in enjoying this wonderful event.
