CORNWALL — On Saturday, Jan. 13, the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum presents the popular Starlab: Indoor Planetarium at the Museum’s Outdoor Discovery Center

Choose from three sessions at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m..

Take a celestial adventure across the night sky via the Starlab, an inflatable planetarium. Come learn how to identify the major constellations and stars, while hearing Native American and Greek stories of how they believed they were created.

Famed cosmologist and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking once said: “Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.”

Please note: The tunnel entrance and seating for the Inflatable Starlab Planetarium are on the floor and therefore is not recommended for those with limited mobility.

This event requires prepaid registration and tends to sell out so registering as early as possible is suggested.

It is recommended for adults and families with children ages 4 and up.

Admission: Not-yet-members adults and children: $12.

Museum member adults and children: $8.

Walk-ins will not be admitted.

The Discovery Center is located on Muser Drive, across from 174 Angola Road in Cornwall.

For more information and online registration, visit hhnm.org or call 845 534-5506, ext 201.
