Since fall is a moon-viewing month in Japan (“Otsukimi”), we will view a full moon (rain or shine) in the Planetarium (Room B 244) while listening to relaxing Shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) live music before an astronomy presentation. These Planetarium Shows are made possible by a grant from the Bellevue College Foundation. If you’re not sure where the planetarium is located, meet our volunteers 20 min. before your showtime at the Information booth by the fountain in front of building C and they will guide you to the Planetarium.
