This Tuesday, the stars will be out well before sunset in Southborough.

The Southborough Library and Southborough Recreation Department have teamed up to bring us a planetarium for the evening.

Registered participants will enter Starlab to look at the Night Skies. Starlab is an inflatable planetarium dome with a projector system. Residents aged 10 and older will “learn to identify stars, constellations, the Milky Way and other wonders of the night sky.”

The dome will be set up at the Southborough Recreation Department’s 21 Highland Street location.

Two sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, August 6, 5:30 – 6:30 pm and 7:00 – 8:00 pm.

There is limited space, so you must pre-register through the Library or Rec Department to participate.
