Grant for Planetarium

Posted: October 27, 2013 - 12:03am

The ‘Friends of the Marie Drake Planetarium’ thank the Douglas-Dornan Foundation for a grant toward the purchase of a new digital projector. We also thank the Juneau Community Foundation and Juneau Montessori for their help in obtaining this grant.

We are a small group of volunteers dedicated to Astronomy education in Juneau. We present free public shows for all ages. Our topics range from the light-hearted: ‘Astronomy humor,’ to the profound: ‘What put the bang in the big bang?’ We will start doing shows in the valley beginning this October at UAS, but the next show at the Planetarium downtown is on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 6:30 p.m., ‘Mercury and Hermes.’ For more information, visit www.mariedrakeplanetarium.org or call 523-2844.


Steve Kocsis, Secretary Friends of the Marie Drake Planetarium
