Rochester Museum and Science Center, 657 East Ave., will continue its Astronomy for Adults series with “A Short History of Planetariums, Including RMSC’s Strasenburgh Planetarium” at 2 p.m. on Nov. 29.
The first planetarium was invented in the early 1900s as an educational exhibit for a museum in Munich, but the emotional and even spiritual power of a planetarium sky surprised the world. Attendees will see how the planetarium idea spread from Germany through the cultures of Japan and America, eventually leading to Rochester’s planetarium. The presentation will provide a glimpse of what new technology could do for the planetarium.
Registration costs $7 for adults, $6 for ages 62 and older and $5 for RMSC members. Visit rmsc.org for information.
