    Hey everyone, while looking for activity ideas I stumbled across the BYU Planetarium's site and this show: [link=http://astronomy.byu.edu/astrosoc/show041307.php]The Astronomy of Harry Potter[/link]. There are two shows that night, so if one was full we could probably get into the other.

    Hehe, I like this part: "Costumes optional, but welcome. Recommended for muggles of all ages who are not afraid of the dark."

    Edit:
    Quick Rundown:
    [hl=blue]Date: Friday, April 13
    Time: 6:15 pm
    Place: Meeting at the Wilkinson Center at BYU to walk to the Eyring Science Center.
    What: The planetarium show at 7 pm!
    What do I need?: $2, no food or drink, a costume if you'd like, and be ready to have a good time!
    [/hl]

    Details:
    We'll be meeting at 6:15 pm at the Wilkinson Center (we now all know where that is, right?) to walk to the Eyring Science Center (for those not familiar with BYU campus). "The shows start promptly at 7 and 8 PM. Tickets are $2 and will be on sale at the door from 6:30 to 7 PM and again from 7:50 to 8 PM."

    We're aiming for the first show at 7 pm. I have no idea how popular these Friday night shows are, especially a Harry Potter-themed one, and I have no idea how many seats there are, so I want to be sure we get there at 6:30 to get tickets and seats.

    FYI, if you'd like to meet us at the ESC: The Planetarium is located in room 465 on the 4th floor of the Eyring Science Center.

    Hope to see you there!

    Sounds pretty intersting! I'll try and fit it into my finals study schedule, and ask Rosi about it.

    Not only is Marlei coming with me, but so is her friend Katherine. She is excited, because she didn't even know BYU had a planetarium. Marlei was lucky enough to go with a school class a few years ago.

    I'm super bummed that I'm not going to be able to make it. I hate finals. *Sigh* Can't wait for the summer.

    so. It was really fun, and it was good to see everyone, and what a nice way to keep busy for an evening!

    Of course now I am full of chocolate cake!

    I actually was there, but realized I didn't know what any of you looked like! I thought that I saw Ish, who I have met before, but I was too unsure to actually go up and say hi, but I was there! I really liked it, despite how many kids were there, they actualy made it quite funny :p And the different stories she told were pretty cool too. Maybe I'll have to get into Astronomy (as opposed to Astrology ;)

    It has been a while since I have checked the boards. I saw this one to late. But I wouldnt have been able to go anyway because I was gone for a class (it was a final type thing for the class).
    Anyway I would have had this same problem If I had been able to go:
