WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Lycoming College will offer two shows in the Detwiler Planetarium on Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. as part of Williamsport’s First Friday events. The events are open to the public. Free tickets are available that evening starting at 5 p.m. outside the planetarium. Seating is first come, first seated.

Visitors to this month’s show, “Birdwatching in the Night Sky,” will observe the 10 bird constellations and learn about their origins. Revisit myths and legends attributed to Cygnus, the swan, and Aquila, the eagle that carried Zeus’s thunderbolts. Also learn about formations within these constellations, like the famous runaway star that forms part of Columba, or Noah’s Dove.

The planetarium is located in the Lynn Science Center on the corner of Washington Blvd. and Mulberry St.
