Lincoln (Neb.) - Aug. 17, 2000 - Mueller Planetarium at the University of Nebraska State Museum has begun its fall schedule of astronomy shows.
The current astronomy show is a double feature of "Saving the Night," about efforts to keep the night sky dark for astronomers and other star lovers, and "StarDate: Ancient Horizons," about the sky legends of ancient Egypt.
The shows have a combined running length of 32 minutes. They are presented at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays (except Nebraska home football Saturdays) and will be shown through the end of September. Admission is $4 for general admission and $3 for children, students (including middle school, high school and college students) and senior citizens. Tickets go on sale one-half hour before show time in the planetarium lobby in Morrill Hall, 14th and U streets.
Laser shows will return to Mueller Planetarium in September.
