Anyone Who’s Anyone: Arlington Planetarium

28 Dec

Arlington’s Planetarium needs your help! It’s budget recently got cut by 60 percent by the Arlington County School Board. If $402,000 isn’t raised by June, the doors that have been open for over 40 years could shut FOREVER. But not all hope is lost! A non-profit organization, Save the Arlington Planetarium, has been established and has currently raised about $135,000.

Never been to the planetarium? Tomorrow is a perfect time to go as “Night at the Planetarium, Part 3!” is being presented. Three shows will be featured from 4 – 9 p.m.

Donations are requested at $10/person and $20/family. Children younger than 9 are free. And donations are tax-deductable, so don’t be a cheapskate.

The planetarium is several blocks from the Virginia Square Metro (Orange Line). There’s a parking lot, but it could fill up so I’d give yourself extra time just in case.
