Lycoming College invites the Williamsport community to enjoy free shows in its Detwiler Planetarium on Nov. 3. The shows, which are part of Williamsport First Friday, begin at 6:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. and are open to the public.

This month's planetarium show will demonstrate some simple techniques for finding constellations in the night sky throughout the year. Easy-to-find constellations from each season will be displayed, and the audience will learn the stories of those constellations. Armed with knowledge of how to follow constellations, attendees will be able to look at the night sky in a new light.

Free tickets are available that evening starting at 5 p.m. outside the planetarium. Seating is first come, first seated. The planetarium is located in the Lynn Science Center on the corner of Washington Boulevard and Mulberry Street.
