The planetarium show will explore the astronomical events associated with the first day of spring on March 20 at 7 p.m. We will demonstrate how the position of the equinox has changed over the millennia with respect to the fixed stars.

The vernal equinox which is both a time and a direction in space is called the first point of Aries. Come find out how the Vernal Equinox got to be in Pisces now and when last it was in Aries. The Vernal equinox was in Taurus when this celebration began 5,000 year ago. Find out when we will really enter the age of Aquarius, when the Vernal Equinox is in Aquarius.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information:
