If you missed it the first time, Marietta College's Dr. Ann Bragg, Director of the Anderson Hancock Planetarium at Marietta College, will be conducting a repeat showing of "Secret of the Cardboard Rocket" in August.
The free community showings will be held 7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 11, and 2 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 14 at the Planetarium.
The demonstration is a cartoon-styled program to help children entering the grades of kindergarten through fourth grade learn about the solar system. Bragg plans to have a short, age appropriate, star discussion after the showing.
Large groups planning on attending are encouraged to make a reservation, which will be available on Aug. 9. To reserve your free spot, call (740) 376-4827 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will also be accepting donations at the conclusion of each program and those without reservations will be admitted on a space-available basis.
The Anderson Hancock Planetarium is located on the Marietta College campus on the corner of Fourth and Butler streets. Handicap parking is available.
