George and Oatmeal Save Santa | A Planetarium Show
This program is best suited for children pre-K to third grade.
Santa fails to return home after delivering toys to children around the world. It is up to a Snowman named Oatmeal and a wizard named George to find Santa and help him find his way home. They do this by learning about the Big and Little Dippers and the North Star.

After the program, we will take a tour of the December night sky and end with a hands-on activity.

When:
Saturday, December 7th, 2013 @ 1PM, 2PM, & 3PM
Where: The Planetarium is located in the southeast corner of the lower level of the Cooper Science Complex (room CP 90)
Cost: FREE - Seating is limited! No reservation or ID is required.

Also this weekend at the BSU Planetarium:


The Star of Bethlehem - A Free Planetarium Show
Can the Star of Bethlehem, as described in the Bible, have a natural explanation? Can the star be explained as a nova or an unusual alignment of the planets? Potential natural explanations for the star of Bethlehem will be discussed along with some recent ideas.
At the end of the show, interesting stellar objects that can be seen on campus this month will be pointed out in the planetarium.
