The Universe is a vast, infinite place.
Is our Sun the only star with planets around it?
Modern technology has allowed astronomers to discover that other stars have planets orbiting them.
What are these planets like? Come and hear about exoplanets and more.
This program will be held rain, snow, or shine (as long as road and weather conditions are safe).

There will be a viewing session after. (weather permitting)
