Description:  This Valentine's Day, treat your special someone to a romantic tour of the universe at the MMSD Planetarium feature presentation "Romance Under the Stars." The beauty of the night sky brings out the romantic side in all of us. Explore the current night sky with your Valentine in the comfort of the planetarium. A flower and Candinas Chocolates will be given to each couple.  This event is rated AC -- Adult couples only. Only one person needs to register from each couple. This is a fundraiser for the MMSD planetarium. All proceeds go toward future upgrades. Register early, this popular show sells out quickly.

For the first two years, the goal of this event was to raise money for the MMSD Planetarium to replace the 50 year old seats.  We have reached this goal, the new seats have been installed, and we now have a new digital planetarium projector as well! Now we are moving on to our next goals!  All proceeds from this year's event will go toward improvements to the planetarium space.

Location:  MMSD Planetarium, 201 S Gammon Rd, inside Memorial High School. 

Audience:  This event is an enrichment opportunity for adults; ages 18 and older.

Instructor:  Geoff Holt

Registration:  Limited seating capacity -- pre-registration is required. Tickets are on sale now!
