The Moorhead State University Planetarium has had a new digital projector installed. The new projector will allow MSUM to provide shows that are more dynamic and far-reaching than the traditional programming that has been shown at the Planetarium since 1972.

The Season of Light show reveals the history of holiday customs from the burning Yule log and sparkling tree lights to the Star of Bethlehem and the Hanukkah Menorah. The show will be presented Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays at 7:00 PM and Sunday at 2:00 PM from December 1 – 22.

The Little Star That Could is a story about an average yellow star in search of planets of his own to protect and warm. Along the way, he learns what makes each star special. It will show Mondays at 7:00 PM and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 PM from January 14 to March 5.

Admission prices are $5.00 for General admission, $2.50 for children 12 and under, $2.50 for Senior citizens (62+) and $2.50 for Tri-college students.

The planetarium is located at 11th Street and 8th Ave South on the MSUM campus in Bridges Hall #167, in Moorhead, MN.

  1. Is UND considered a Tri-college?

  2. I believe the tri-colleges are MSUM, NDSU and Concordia.
