Lycoming College invites the Williamsport community to enjoy free shows in its Detwiler Planetarium on Feb. 2. 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 show will highlight our changing night sky. Other than special events, the night sky does not appear to change over our lifetimes. However, the sky is constantly changing and we will see how the sky will appear thousands of years in the future.

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.
