Lycoming College invites the Williamsport community to enjoy free shows in its Detwiler Planetarium on Dec. 1. 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, the audience is invited to take a journey to our nearest stellar neighbor and explore the exoplanet closest to our own Solar System. Attendees will be given a unique opportunity to explore the cutting-edge observations being made of this system. Several important topics like how the system was detected and how we intend to explore it will be covered.

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. There will not be a January show.
