North Hills Senior High School planetarium will welcome community members in February for two shows aimed at specific age groups. A double feature of two back-to-back shows will be shown on the 24-foot planetarium dome on Feb. 5, 8 and 11.
“Don’t Duck! Look Up!” starts at 6:30 p.m. and is targeted for children from preschool through primary elementary age.
“Clouds of Fire” will follow at 7:15 p.m. and is appropriate for upper-elementary age children through adults.
In “Don’t Duck! Look Up!,” audience members will help Dudley, a young duckling, learn about the sky. The show details the sun’s movements, a rainstorm and starry nights.

“Clouds of Fire” explores the life cycles of stars and examines what different cultures believed about stars. This show is part of the North Hills High School chemistry curriculum.
All shows are free and open to the public.
The North Hills Senior High planetarium is located on the third floor of the senior high school at 53 Rochester Road in Ross Township. The gift shop will be open for all shows.
North Hills remains one of only a few districts across the state to offer a planetarium for educational and community outreach purposes in a public high school. The planetarium is overseen by senior high teacher Sue Batson.
