The Planetarium at CCM

Today we went to the Planetarium at CCM (County College of Morris in Randolph Township)
It was titled Shapes in the Sky 22, part of a series of programs especially for children ages 3 to 7. We did not make reservations ahead of time and this was a mistake since the show was booked. Luckily they had a waiting line in case there were no-shows and we were able to get in. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling Annmarie Lippiello at 973-328-5076.
Chris Fenwick was the presenting astronomer and was a hit with both the kids and adults providing a humorous and educational presentation. Chris started the program by introducing us to LOGAN (pictured above) "the machine" that would create the constellations that we would see among them were: Cassiopeia, Pegasus, Orion, Taurus, and the Little and Big Dipper. Pictures were overlaid to bring the shapes into focus and pointers were given for finding the constellations in the night sky. My daughter and Niece were a little afraid of the dark so that should be a consideration the length of the presentation seemed just about right. I am looking forward to next Program which will be held on Saturday, May 10, 2008 -- 11:00, 1:00, 3:00
CCM is Located at 214 Center Grove Road Randolph, NJ 07869-2086
