GOLDEN POND – The Friends of Land Between the Lakes will be hosting an array of stellar evening shows for the 2019 summer season at the Golden Pond Planetarium and Observatory.

Laser and evening planetarium showings and Star Parties offer indoor and outdoor activities after 5 p.m. starting in May and lasting all summer. The planetarium offers evening astronomy shows and the members of the West Kentucky Amateur Astronomers host Star Parties, weather permitting.

Seasoned astronomers use telescopes to guide children and adults in observing the night sky. Observatory Star Parties follow the last show in the planetarium. Astronomy shows replace the 8 p.m. laser shows on Star Party evenings.
