The SUNY Oswego planetarium will explore "The Stars of Winter" at 7 p.m. every Sunday during December.

Planetarium director Dr. Scott Roby will point out the bright stars and constellations visible in winter evenings and tell some mythological tales behind the constellations. Attendees can see the likes of Orion and the Gemini Twins. Star maps will be provided.

The show also will include a sneak preview of the full dome video "Galileo: The Power of a Telescope."

Sunday shows take place through June with changing topics each month in the state-of-the-art facility on the second floor of the Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation.

The planetarium has limited seating, so guests are encouraged to arrive a bit early. Shows are recommended for children ages 4 and older. An adult must accompany children under 17. No food or drink is permitted in the facility.

Parking is free in the commuter lot off Washington Boulevard and the employee lot off Centennial Boulevard across from Shineman Center.
