If you haven’t heard about Morehead’s new PLANETS portable planetarium program, here’s a sneak peek for you.

portable planetarium inside Morehead\'s Star TheaterThe big “ant” at upper left is our Zeiss Model VI star projector, the centerpiece of Morehead’s Star Theater (and one of only six in the U.S.). The black “igloo” at upper right is the new PLANETS dome, which you’ll see visiting schools and communities across North Carolina.

And the smiling folks in front? You might recognize some of them as our Carolina Skies presenters (we call them “Sky Ramblers”) — Meteor Mike, Richard, Mickey Jo, Elysa, Alisa and Amy. You’ll see Elysa (holding the globe) on the road with PLANETS most often.

Karen Kornegay is Morehead's marketing manager.
