The Southern Sky from Namibia
Join us as Mt Hood Community College Planetarium Director Pat Hanrahan shares stories and celestrial images from last summer's trip to Namibia in southern Africa. Near total darkness provided an opportunity to capture many incredible images from the seldom seen southern night sky.
All shows are presented under a realistic representation of the night sky, featuring the latest galactic, stellar and planetary images.
Visitors are encouraged to ask questions during each 45-minute program. Children are welcome to attend.
Parking permits are required and may be purchased for $3 at ticket kiosks located by the flagpoles (north parking) and gym (south parking). (Violators will be ticketed)
Individuals requiring accommodations due to a disability should contact the MHCC Disability Services Office at 503-491-6923 or 503-491-7670 (TDD). Please call at least two weeks prior to the event to ensure availability.
