A planetarium visited Pathfinder Services recently, part of PNC Bank’s “Growing Up Great Together Under One Big Sky” mobile planetarium tour.

Children ages 3 through 5 went inside the inflatable dome to view the show “One World, One Sky” Big Bird’s Adventure.” They learned the basic principles of astronomy and learned about other cultures as they witnessed shooting stars and used their imaginations to visit the moon.

At the end of the 20-minute show, each child received a trilingual “One World, One Sky” daytime/nighttime poster with tips on finding stars.
