SHIPPENSBURG- The Dibert-Roddick Planetarium at Shippensburg University is having its annual spring star show. The Planetarium uses the star projector to look at the spring sky and discuss how the motions of the heavens are used to mark time, the seasons and to set events on our calendar.

Also being discussed is the 35 possible dates of Gregorian Easter. Come learn why this holiday moves and how a simple rule easily determines its date.

The spring star show will take place on Tuesday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m. The planetarium is located in Franklin Science Center. The doors will open at 7:15. Tickets are $1 for adults and 50 cents for children under 12.
