UOG Planetarium Shows – Jan. 14, 15, 16

Public shows are “Winter Skies” at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 14, 15, and 16. In this show, you’ll discover all the bright stars and famous constellations of Guam ’s winter skies and learn some new ones as well. Winter skies are the best star-gazing skies of the year because they usually have the fewest clouds. At 7:00 p.m. we’ll have “Quality Time with the Star Lady”. Jupiter is that really bright star in the western sky after sunset and Mars will officially enter the early evening sky later this month. If you’d like to see it now, just go out around 8:30 and face east, opposite where the Sun disappeared. That really bright red star close to the horizon isn’t a star. It’s Mars.
