BYU Planetarium

On Friday, November 16, Jane and I went to the Eyring Science Center’s planetarium on BYU campus. It is always fun to spend time with my daughters, so we had a wonderful evening together, but I admittedly lament the demise of the traditional planetarium show. When I was young, the rare planetarium visit was a treat. The guide showed us various constellations and pointed out stars and other celestial bodies we could go out and see for ourselves following the show. We learned how to remember where certain things were and all kinds of neat stuff. BYU’s presentation was…a 1980’s Tron-style 3D graphics show featuring music from The Pixies? Really? Sorry, Jane! I think we’ll do our own observations outside from now on.
