It's finally Spring, and that doesn't just mean warmer temps - it's a whole new night sky.

That's why the Allen Planetarium is once again hosting its seasonal star program.

It's a quick look at where the stars and planets are aligning.

All are invited and admission is donation-based.

The winter weather canceled last season's program, so organizers are ready this spring show:

"The Big Dipper and the Little Dipper and where they are in the sky during the spring season. We have a total lunar eclipse coming up in April so we'll fill you in on the details about that. And what planets are visible in the sky right now," said Holly Hudson, director of the planetarium. "Fun family event. So come and learn a little bit about the sky and take the opportunity to look up.">>

The seasonal star program kicks off Friday at 6:30 p.m.

There are two shows Saturday at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Doors open 30 minutes early.

If the skies are clear on Saturday, ISU will be there with the solar telescope.
