ENID, Okla. — Northern Oklahoma College's Mackie Planetarium is kicking off a new season of starry shows starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, an NOC release said.

This first show of the school year is a three-part act.

First, attendees will be taken for a tour of Enid's night sky and introduced to the constellations and planets overhead, the release states. Second, visitors will be shown a faraway constellation, Lyra, the home of a dying star. Last comes a trip to Saturn, the release said.

Planetarium shows are open to the public at no charge, the release said. Donations of food items for Our Daily Bread are accepted but not required.
