The University of Saint Francis is hosting their annual Christmas presentation, “Star of Bethlehem 2010,” in the Edwin Clark Schouweiler Memorial Planetarium in Achatz Hall of Science through December 19.
The show investigates possible explanations for the biblical Star of Bethlehem, taking the audience back in time to follow the journey of the Magi under the Middle Eastern sky of 3-2 BC. Following the presentation, planetarium staff guides the audience through the wonders of a December night sky in Fort Wayne.
“Star of Bethlehem” is open to the public, and tickets can be purchased at the door. Admission is $4 for adults and $3 for senior citizens and children under age 18. The maximum charge per family will be $14. The planetarium staff advises parents of children under age 5 to prepare their youngsters to sit quietly in near-darkness for 35 minutes. The entire show lasts approximately 90 minutes.
A schedule for the show follows. Those arriving early for tickets will be seated in adjacent Gunderson Auditorium for a pre-show update on space shuttle Discovery’s final November flight to the International Space Station.
Friday, Dec. 17 – 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 18 – 3 and 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, Dec. 19 – 5 p.m.
