What is there to do?

Space...the final frontier....and also the place you can discover at Abrams Planetarium at the Michigan State University!

Abrams Planetarium has dedicated it's weekends for shows for families just like you. The shows are a great way for the children to be introduced to various and fascinating space-related topics, where they can learn all the weird and wonderful facts of what goes on up in our universe. 

Of course, if you're doing all this learning about space, how do you feel about actually SEEING it!

Abrams Planetarium offers public observation viewing evenings, where you can actually look through their powerful telescope and see some incredible astronomical objects. There are smaller telescopes also set up in the parking lot where astronomers are on hand to answer any questions.

You will be amazed with what you might see! Perhaps you will see the craters of the moon up close? Perhaps you will actually see the rings of Saturn with your very own eyes, or the big red spot on Jupiter.

These sessions occur about twice a month from April to October, so make sure you get in early so you don't miss out.

For children to be able to experience space with their very own eyes will let them see our universe in a whole new light!

There is so much to explore and learn about, so a trip to Abrams Planetarium will certainly be a great start in their astronomical education!

Enjoy the final frontier kids...there is PLENTY waiting up there for you!
