Morehead Planetarium starts summer schedule

Posted June 9, 2014

Morehead Planetarium and Science Center's summer schedule began over the weekend.

The Chapel Hill destination, which is general open on the weekends during most of the year, will have a show schedule running Tuesday through Sunday now through Aug. 24.

The schedule includes "Magic Tree House: Space Mission" with characters from the popular early chapter book for kids. "One World, One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure" also will be screened this summer, among other shows.

Some news on prices for fulldome shows: Starting now, Morehead's fulldome planetarium shows will cost $7.68 for adults, $6.51 for children and $3.26 for a second show. Morehead members are always free. These prices do not include the 7.5 percent N.C. sales tax that Morehead and other places like it are now required to include.
