A free double-feature show will be held Saturday, Novmeber 19 at 1 p.m. in room 309 of the Rhoades Science Center on the Valley City State Unversity Campus.

Finding Polaris I and II Meet Polaris—THE North Star!—who acts as tour guide, turning a lost Astronomy student's fact-finding mission into a strange and often humorous adventure. Polaris begins by introducin­g us to the Big and Little Bears, then, the star Betelgeuse tells the story of Orion, Markab of Perseus, and Vega of the Summer Triangle. Then we are visiting with some of Polaris’ friends that are the major stars of the springtime sky: Arcturus, Spica, Regulus, Capella, and Thuban.
