Star of Bethlehem 2014 at USF entering final weekend

(December 17, 2014) — “Star of Bethlehem 2014,” a Christmas program at the University of Saint Francis’ Schouweiler Planetarium, will continue to be offered through Sunday, December 21.

  • Friday shows are at 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday shows are at 3 and 7:30 p.m.

The public is invited to join the planetarium staff for a 90-minute program exploring the path of the Wise Men as they follow the star under the Mideastern sky of 3 B.C. Using the latest astronomical, historical and Biblical research, explanations of what the Christmas star might have been will be presented. During the live portion of the show, planetarium staff will show visitors the wonders of the winter night sky in Fort Wayne.

Viewers should arrive 15 minutes early to purchase tickets and take a seat in an adjacent auditorium before the show begins. No one will be admitted after the program starts. While the program is for visitors of all ages, young children must be able to sit quietly in the dark.
