Saturday is May 4th, which may be best known as "May the 4th Be  With You".

Lindsie Smith, Associate Director, says Clark Planetarium has a full day of activities planned for you.  There will be $4 movies all day long.  You'll see Cosplay characters, and there's a costume contest at 4:00 p.m. for guests.

Be sure to take part in the Augmented Reality photo experience -- that's where people can take photos with a character or wearing a mask of a character.

You'll also have fun playing around with droid remote control activities.

There is another big event coming up at Clark Planetarium as well - that's Astronomy Day on Saturday, May 11.  There will be a Daytime Star Party in The Gateway from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. which includes viewing of the sun.

The Aquariid Meteor Shower peek is from May 5 to 6.

And On May 25th, the Expedition Reef opens in the Hansen Dome Theater.  The movie talks about coral and why it's so important.
