In the early evening sky, Jupiter shines brightly high overhead. Learn how to find the planets and constellations visible in York's February night sky during three shows presented by the York County Astronomical Society.

In "Max Goes to the Moon," Max (the dog) and a young girl named Tori take the first trip to the Moon since the Apollo era. Along the way, the story sets the stage for the more sophisticated science of the topics.

In "StarWatch," become a star watcher by exploring the current night sky, locate visible constellations, and enjoy some sky lore. Receive a star map and get answers to questions such as: What can be seen with a telescope tonight? How do I find the North Star?

Learn about telescopes in the planetarium program "Two Small Pieces of Glass." While attending a local star party, two teenage students learn how the telescope has helped us understand our place in space and how telescopes continue to expand our understanding of the Universe.
