More Information (Directions)

In preparation for the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, Morehead State University's Star Theater will host special presentations of the program "Totality," August 14 through 18. 

Totality is a fascinating look at all the wonders of eclipses, especially total solar eclipses. 

The 25-minute program, produced by Bays Mountain Planetarium, examines what eclipses are, how and when they occur, and what wonderful sights they create.  It also looks back to a fascinating period in scientific discovery when general relativity was proven with the photographic  recording of a total solar eclipse.

This production includes a variety of wonderful styles - from spectacular space environments to humorous pop-up books.  A very special part of the show relates, in a very human way, what happens when you are caught in the shadow of the moon and the sun is plunged into a total solar eclipse.

Programs will be held at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. each night Monday through Friday.  Monday through Thursday the 6 p.m. program will be followed by a 15 minute talk/question and answer session presented by Dr. Thomas Pannuti, professor of astrophysics and space science.

The 7 p.m. program will be followed by a 15 minute talk/question and answer session presented by Dr. Dirk Grupe, assistant professor of astrophysics and space science.  There will be no talks after the Friday programs.

Admission for these programs is $2 per person (4 years old and under admitted free).
