Fire up your rockets for a cosmic summer solstice event with the MSUM Planetarium!

Fire up your rockets for a cosmic summer solstice event with the Minnesota State University Moorhead Planetarium!  "Solstice" actually means the "sun stands still", but we won't be standing around while summer begins.  Instead, we'll be learning about the sun's tilt-a-whirl journey around the earth. We hope to see you on this longest day! This program is intended for youth, but all ages are welcome.
