Have you ever been to a planetarium? If you haven’t, check one out. It just so happens that astronomy students from the University of North Florida are cooking up what amounts to an official journey to the stars launched right here in Jacksonville.

If you want a creativity boost, this might be the perfect opportunity. What does it cost? 

Nothing.

A special Facebook page details the event:

“Join UNF Astronomy students at the MOSH Planetarium at 6:00pm on Friday, February 23rd! Learn how to access and understand the night sky here in the Jacksonville community. Explore involvement options from the UNF Astronomy Club, #popscope, and theSTEM! The night will end with a FREE Live Planetarium Show followed by a #popscope star party outside the museum.

This event is paid for by the UNF Astronomy Club and is FREE for curious minds of all ages!

There are 190 spaces available in the planetarium, so the event will run as first come, first serve! MOSH doors open at 6:00pm, the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium doors open at 6:15pm.”

The Museum of Science and History is located at 1025 Museum Circle in Jacksonville (FL).

Nothing is more inspiring than a night sky full of stars, and the planetarium show will deliver that for sure. According to the MOSH website, “The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium, one of the largest single-lens planetariums in the United States, uses cutting edge technology to bring the night skies to life and entertain visitors of all ages.”
