[FOTHP] April Public Show

Friends of the Hudnall Planetarium,

"MORE
THAN MEETS THE EYE"
AT
HUDNALL PLANETARIUM


This Saturday and Sunday, April 4 and 5 at 2:00 PM, Tyler Junior
College's Hudnall Planetarium will feature the public presentation of
"More Than Meets The Eye", a planetarium show that describes the
joys of night sky observing using the unaided eye, binoculars, and small
telescopes. "More Than Meets The Eye" is the perfect show if you
consider yourself a stargazer. Constellations, planets, nebulae, star
clusters, and galaxies all appear differently depending upon if you view
with the unaided eye, or with binoculars, or with a telescope. This
show proves that backyard astronomy can be enjoyable and simple. You
will quickly discover that there is a lot more to the night sky than
meets the eye.

Admission costs to "More Than Meets The Eye" are $3.00 per person.
Tickets are available at the door one-half hour before each showing. No
seating is allowed after the show begins. For more information about
the Hudnall Planetarium call 903-510-2312 or visit the planetarium
website at http://planetarium.tjc.edu. Hudnall Planetarium is located
on the main campus of Tyler Junior College near the intersection of
Mahon Avenue and Lake Street.
