The Fred G. Dale Planetarium at Wayne State College will begin its 2013 Fall season of public shows at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6.

“Zula Patrol” will be a kids cartoon about the intrepid heroes of the Zula Patrol that must save their pet Gorga and stop the villain Dark Truder’s nefarious scheme to rule the Universe at 6:30 p.m. The second show at 7:30 pm will be “Origins of Life,” which deals with some of the most profound questions of life science: the origins of life and human search of life beyond Earth.

Also included in each show will be a tour of the current night sky and our new constellation song. Subsequent shows will be on certain Friday nights and Sunday afternoons throughout the fall.

Please visit www.wsc.edu/planetarium for a detailed schedule, more information about these public shows, and how to book a private group showing. The suggested donation for all shows is $5 for adults and $3 for kids; all donations are appreciated.
