Sky Theater puts solar system in lights

Get a guided trip through the solar system at the University of North Texas Sky Theater this weekend. The on-campus planetarium is showing Solar System Tours for its August Children’s Matinee, each Saturday at noon.

For just a few bucks and a cool afternoon in the university’s domed theater, kids can tour the solar system, stopping at each planet — and a few other wonders, too — and get a close look at Earth’s nearest neighbors.

The Sky Theater is also screening Wonders of the Universe — a look deep into space, courtesy of the famous Hubble Telescope — at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. each Saturday.
