Planetarium hosts 200+ people for 50th Anniversary Kickoff Event

July 21 from 6-8 pm the MSUM Planetarium hosted more than 200 people for their 50th Anniversary Celebration Kickoff event featuring the James Webb Space Telescope First Images.  With live presentation from faculty, Dr. Matthew Craig, STEM activities and demonstrations by the Society of Physics Students, telescopes set up from the Fargo-Moorhead Astronomy Club, and a live laser dance party with DJ 1PrettyRicky, it was a blast for everyone in attendance.

This event is just the first of several in the next few months leading up to MSUM Giving day and the 50th Anniversary Celebration on Oct 29.  During this celebration, the Planetarium will be working to raise funds for a full laser light show projection system.  We are looking back on the last 50 years as well as forward to the next 50!
