Children in Door County are getting introduced to outer space with a new portable planetarium. The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society has been taking their new planetarium to Door County Libraries and there are more events scheduled in July. Dave Lenius, a board member of the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society, says the shows they’ve put on have been entertaining and informational. He thinks it’s amazing how much they’re able to do with a small, blow-up planetarium.
The planetarium’s next visit will be to the Washington Island Library on July 15th from 2 to 3 PM. It will also be at the Baileys Harbor Library on July 17th from 6 to 7 PM and the Egg Harbor Library on July 31st from 10 AM to noon.
