VSU offers free presentation about Pluto

Kenneth Rumstay Kenneth Rumstay

If you're not going to a football game tonight and are looking for something to do, you could head to Valdosta State University's planetarium.

At 7, 8, and 9 p.m. tonight there will be a presentation in the planetarium about the dwarf planet Pluto.

The presentation is free, but seating is limited to 47 people per presentation. VSU Astronomy and Physics professor, Dr. Kenneth Rumstay, will give the presentation.

He says he usually sees a big turnout for presentations, but the recent news about water on Mars may encourage more people to come out than usual.

"I think the public has always been excited [about the planets]," said Dr. Rumstay. "This has certainly been a very exciting discovery. We've always suspected that there might be some subterranean water on Mars."

The planetarium is located on the third floor of Nevins Hall.

VSU's observatory will also be open from 7-10 p.m., weather permitting.
