The one complaint I hear about the Planetarium shows is why cannot there be MORE of them? To answer that please consider these facts about the Planetarium:
The entire schedule of shows for the coming semester are posted on the William M Thomas Planetarium's website at least one week before the semester begins. I also advertise the shows in my newspaper column. Tickets for shows will be available for purchase from the BC Ticket Office up to four weeks before a given show but after the previous show. The fall semester at Bakersfield College begins the fourth week of August and the spring semester begins the Tuesday after the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
Do not delay in making your purchases! Shows sell out quickly with the entire Fall 2011 semester selling out during the first week of the semester. In order to decrease the number of no-shows for the shows, tickets will now be sold up to four weeks before a given show date but after the previous show instead of the whole slate of shows at once.
