Gene Roddenberry Planetarium Hosting Indoor/Outdoor Full Moon Show Thursday

Borderland stargazers are invited for a free night of learning at an indoor/outdoor event at the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium this Thursday night.

The Gene Roddenberry Planetarium Coalition has partnered with the Sun City Astronomers, the EPCC Astronomy Club, and the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium to host a perfect night for the whole family.

While its first come, first served for the indoor show; there will be telescopes set up outside for a great view of the full moon. Attendees are asked to bring lawn chairs, as there’s going to be fun, food trucks, and refreshments available during the event.

The Planetarium Coalition is a non-profit organization that has been working to help raise awareness of and funds for the sole purpose of helping keep the Planetarium alive.

Officials with the coalition say, “Though our work is only beginning, we are committed to doing everything we can to insure the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium continues to be a shining star in the cosmic learning of the greater El Paso community.”

The El Paso Herald-Post is a proud sponsor and supporter of both the planetarium and the Planetarium Coalition.

As such, we invite community members to not only attend the free events, but pledge support for the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium via the group’s facebook page.
