Whittenberger Planetarium hosts February events

Explore the wonders of our galaxy as the Whittenberger Planetarium hosts its monthly public show at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3 on The College of Idaho campus.

The night’s theme will be solar eclipses, as the United States will experience a full solar eclipse this August, as the moon perfectly aligns between the earth and the sun. Even better, the path of totality will travel through Idaho! Guests will also get an overview of constellations, planets, and moon visible in the February night sky.
