The "Night Sky Sampler" event is scheduled for Friday at the university's Bruner Hall of Science planetarium. The public show begins at 7 p.m., with an encore scheduled for 8 p.m. if there is an overflow crowd.
The planetarium's director, Dr. Jose Mena-Werth, says the show will feature a tour of the brightest features in the night sky. The show lasts 30 minutes, followed by a question-and-answer period.
Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Children must be at least 5 years old to attend, and no food or drinks are allowed inside the planetarium. The show is free, but organizers are accepting dry and canned goods for the Campus Kitchen.
