A Night of Stars to Support the STAR Act


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

UAA BSW Students, in conjunction with the Planetarium & Visualization Theater, are holding a special charity showing of the 'Stars of the Alaskan Sky' planetarium show! Half of all proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society - Cancer Action Network to fund cancer research and patient quality-of-life support.
We will also be gathering signatures asking Congress to renew the STAR Act, which provides the opportunity to:
- Increase funding for childhood cancer research
- Improve data collection so pediatric oncologists can better learn from one another
- Expand research on the long-term effects of childhood cancer treatments
About the Planetarium Show:
Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered what you were seeing? What is that bright object on the horizon? And where is the Big Dipper? In a special all-live presentation, we'll take you on a tour of the night sky and show you what you can see during our Alaskan nights. You'll learn about what constellations are visible, how to look for the moon, and what planets you can see. And best of all, it will be a balmy 68 degrees inside the planetarium!
