ORONO - The Planetarium is kicking off the new year with four star-studded programs for visitors of all ages. Come explore the cosmos with public star shows every Friday night at 7 and Sunday afternoon at 2.

On Friday evenings, experience the attraction of black holes while exploring the history, physics, and mysteries of such astronomical wonders. 'Black Holes' allows viewers to perceive the reality-bending phenomena of these fascinating graveyards of deceased stars on Jan. 29. 'Cosmic Journey,' on Jan. 22, brings viewers on a trip through our solar system, exploring majestic volcanoes and monstrous hurricanes, all while taking in the wonders of these planets and their moons.

On Sunday, Jan. 31 at 2 p.m., star explorers have the opportunity to adventure into space with a curious Coyote in 'Earth, Moon, and Sun.' For ages 6-12, 'Earth, Moon, Sun' demonstrates the lunar phases, eclipses, day and night, and the sun, as well as a live tour of the Maine sky, with all of its beautiful constellations. On Jan. 24, 'Little Star that Could' takes the audience on a journey through space with an inquisitive young star who learns about what makes our universe unique.

Admission is $6 per person and seating is limited. For more information and reservations please call (207) 581-1341 or visit Astro.UMaine.edu. Private shows and school field trips can be arranged for these and other shows.
