Morehead Planetarium and Science Center has been closed for the past month for regular maintenance. But this Saturday, it's back open and operating again. And staff is preparing for some big changes.
The historic Zeiss VI star projector was removed and there is a new look for the planetarium's GSK Fulldome Theater. Morehead is preparing to launch two new planetarium shows in the months ahead. There also are plans for a holiday concert series.
Saturday's planetarium shows include "Earth, Moon and Sun" at 10:30 a.m. and "Carolina Skies" at 2:30 p.m.
