What Happened to Pluto? 

When: Sat., Aug. 20 2011
Can you remember the day you learned that Pluto was no longer a planet? Shocking, wasn't it? All those wasted years making models, learning mnemonics, and for what? But astronomers had their reasons for revoking Pluto's planetary membership. And in case you've forgotten what they were, the Great Lakes Science and Nature Center in Bay Village is offering a brush-up today at 1:30 p.m. "So Why Isn't Pluto a Planet Anymore?" will explain the reasoning behind the big decision and inform you about the dwarf planets (Pluto's new designation) inhabiting our solar system. Planetarium admission is $2, and the 30-minute program is recommended for those ages 7 and up. Find details on the website. — Hayden 28728 Wolf Rd., Bay Village, 440-871-2900,lensc.org.
