Posted Aug 18th, 2010 by Heather Hoffman  Category: Arts & Entertainment,


This fall, audiences of all ages can experience life on Mars through the newest show at Lourdes’ Appold Planetarium. Mars forges through the science and the fiction, fast-forwarding to the space age and the dusty, cratered world discovered by the Mariner, Viking and Pathfinder missions. Join in the latest discoveries from a new generation of Mars exploration craft and take a speculative look into the future. Mars shows on the following Saturdays:
August 28
September 4
October 2
October 9

All Planetarium shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and for Lourdes College students presenting their student ID. Shows at the Appold Planetarium are limited to 50 and often sell out. Visit for more information.
