Newport Lake as seen along Country Club Road in the city limits of Newport

Wednesday, June 12, Jackson County Library will host a Traveling Planetarium inside the Newport Business Resource Center (201 Hazel Street). The first viewing will begin at 10:00 a.m. and the second viewing begins at 1:00 p.m. Go inside the star-filled SkyDome planetarium to learn about the current night sky.  Hear the stories our ancestors told about the stars, learn about the Milky Way and see where the planets can be found.  Science exhibits include meteorites, rocket / aircraft models, astronaut autographs, rock and soil samples from around the world, fossils and more. Weather permitting we’ll have telescopes for safe viewing of the Sun.
