New Fernbank Planetarium shows feature the skies of Africa

During February, the Fernbank Planetarium gives visitors a look at the stars as they appear from an African vantage point.

The children’s program, “Stories of Africa,” compares the night skies over Atlanta and Africa. It runs Feb. 5-26, with shows on Saturdays at 1:30.

“African Skies,” designed for audiences ages 10 and up, examines how Africans used the stars to measure distance, predict weather and create calendars. The show runs from Feb. 5 to March 4, with shows on Thursday and Friday evenings at 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday afternoons at 3 p.m.

Admission is $4 for adults; $3 for students and seniors.
