Spooky Star Party in Sanford - October 21, 2017


Emil Buehler Planetarium at Seminole State College
100 Weldon Blvd, Sanford, Florida 32773

The Planetarium is very proud to host the inaugural "Spooky Star Party!" on Saturday, Oct. 21, from 6-9:30 p.m. Join us for an evening of celestial observation, tales from the night sky, science demonstrations, and of course...candy! We encourage everyone to dress up in their Halloween best, and we'll hold our famous children's costume contest as well!

Like at all planetarium star parties, admission to the event is completely free! All activities, including the "Into The West" planetarium presentation in the star party, are included.

There will be plenty of space in the star party area for visitors to bring chairs and blankets. The event will take place in the faculty and staff parking lot adjacent to building B and the planetarium, just off College Drive on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. Visitors may park in the lots in front of buildings B and D. All site information can be found in the pinned post in the "Discussion" section.

Please note: there will be an admission-required planetarium presentation of "Spooky Skies" in the dome at 10 p.m. Information on this standalone show can be found on the event page.

We hope to see you there!
