1. Stargazing at the Hokulani Imaginarium
Learn about constellations, the moon’s cycles and orbiting planets while viewing the night sky. The stargazing takes place the second Wednesday of each month inside the 66- seat Hokulani Imaginarium, a high-tech planetarium and multimedia facility. The imaginarium is part of the Windward Community College campus. Education specialist Krissie Kellogg will be on hand to help identify constellations and keep the audience up to date on celestial happenings, such as meteor showers or eclipses. “Each show is different because the sky is constantly changing,” says Imaginarium manager Nancy Ali. Wednesday, May 12 at 7 p.m., $3, 45-720 Keaahala Road, aerospace.wcc.hawaii.edu.
