Lycoming College invites the Williamsport community to enjoy free shows in its Detwiler Planetarium on October 5th. 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 will be given a glimpse into the sun. Attendees will explore the fascinating features of our nearest star and some of the interesting phenomena we see here on earth because of it. Important topics include a description of the composition and activity of the sun, and an overview of solar eclipses and the Parker Solar Probe.

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.
