Seven thousand stars

Students bored with the
everyday environs of Ann
Arbor can head ever to the
Angell Hall Planetarium
and see 7,000 stars.
Patrick Seitzer, an asso-
ciate research scientist at
the University, said the
planetarium - located on
the third floor of the build-
ing - was built in the 1950's
to better serve astronomy
classes on campus. On Sept.
1, 2004, a new, computer-
run projector replaced
the manual one that was
installed in 1957.
Seitzer said the new sys-
tem displays 7,000 stars,
compared to the 1,000 that
could have been geen in the
manual projector. Accord-
ing to the Student Astro-
nomical Society's website,
the projector can show

other astronomical fea-
tures, including the moon,
planets, the Milky Way and
star clusters.
Throughout the week,
four undergraduate astron-
omy courses and one
minicourse meet in the
planetarium - the reason
why the facility was built in
the first place, Seitzer said.
"It is currently used
for undergraduate educa-
tion to teach the night sky
and how to navigate it,"
Seitzer said. "The plan-
etarium guarantees the
night sky for students in
the classes."
In addition to being used
by the astronomy classes,
the planetarium also holds
open houses organized by
the SAS for the general
public every other Friday.

LSA senior Nhein Nguy-
en said he enjoyed attend-
ing one of the planetarium
open houses.
"They give you a 15 min-
utt presentation about
the constellations that are
available that night, and
you go on the roof of Angell.
Hall which has telescopes
set up," Nguyen said. "I
thought tbe presentation.
was humorous and not
technical. Anyone could go
and understand it, and it
was entertaining."
Nguyen said he would
recommend anyone to go to
the planetarium. "It's one
of the things that a student
should do: go' to the obser-
vatory of Angell Hall and
the planetarium."
