“Gateway to the Stars” moves to Oct. 8

The next showing of “Gateway to the Stars” will be October 1, 2011 in the Hansen Dome Theatre, featuring Clark Planetarium’s new Digistar 4 system. It will be a crisper, more colorful starfield, with a host of new visual effects. As we move into autumn, stars like the “Summer Triangle” will appear further to the western side of the sky as new stars like the “Great Square of Pegasus” climb up into the eastern sky.
