    Spring 2015 Planetarium Show Schedule 

     

    Saint Vincent College announces the Spring 2015 schedule for public planetarium shows at the Angelo J. Taiani Planetarium and Astronaut Exhibit in the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion. Shows are conducted by one of the members of the College’s Department of Physics – Dr. John Smetanka, Dr. Dan Vanden Berk, or Br. Lawrence Machia, O.S.B.

    This spring the Planetarium is debuting “Eyes of Faith”. This new show is developed and presented by Br. Lawrence Machia, O.S.B., a monk of Saint Vincent Archabbey.”Eyes of Faith” provides a window on the universe uncovered by contemporary Astronomy from a faith-affirming perspective. The new show debuts at 1:30pm on February 21st and April 11th.

    All shows are free of charge. Because of limited seating we ask that reservations be made by calling the Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Science, Mathematics, and Computing at (724) 805-2631. Additional public shows may be added based on demand. Private shows can also be scheduled for groups of 15 to 35 people.
