Please join us for an Afternoon with the Stars

This series of FREE astronomy presentations is for both the GCC community and the general public. The presentations will be given most Thursdays this semester (Spring 2015) from 12:30 - 1:00 PM in the GCC planetarium (CS257). The topics for the different presentations are listed below.

Please be aware that the planetarium is a Glendale Community College facility and used primarily for the college classes.  The planetarium is closed when the college is not in regular session.  Therefore, there are no shows during the summer (most of June, July and August), or during the winter intersession (January& February).  Thank you for your understanding.
