The free public program, sponsored by the Department of Physics and Astronomy in the ETSU College of Arts and Sciences, will be shown Thursday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m.

The show, which explains how astronomical observations may be connected to legal investigations, will showcase the visual graphics capability of the planetarium's state-of-the-art, full-dome digital projection system.

The ETSU planetarium is on the top floor of Hutcheson Hall in room 207.

Visitors may enter Hutcheson Hall at the east end of the building where the elevator is located, and may park without permits during the evening hours in either student or faculty/staff lots.
