Close Encounters of the 1975 Kind Planetarium Show
Easton, Maine

November 5, 2016 - November 5, 2016

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE 1975 KIND! On Saturday, November 5th @ 7:00 pm (8:00 Atlantic), the new digital planetarium theater at the Francis Malcolm Science Center hosts our seasonal remembrance of the eerie UFO Encounter at the former Loring Air Force Base in Autumn, 1975. Local testimony will add special excitement and zest to this still unsolved mystery in a program produced by students of the Maine School of Science and Mathematics in 2009. Additionally, “2 Small Pieces of Glass” will celebrate civilization's discovery and adventure with astronomy's greatest tool...the telescope. Weather permitting, stirring sky watching will follow the program. Bring your telescopes or binoculars, and dress appropriately. For reservations or further information call (207) 488-5451. Admission: $5.00 adults/$3.00 students.
