Technical and Production Coordinator, Dave Bush points out a deep-sky object known as a Globular Cluster of stars -- which are made up of some of the oldest stars in the universe. They are usually found in the sky during the late Spring and Summer months as our nighttime vantage point is directed toward the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. Visitors to the newly-renovated Vanderbilt Planetarium's William and Mollie Rogers Theater will see not only new shows produced by planetariums in Britain, China and the United States, but also extraordinary NASA imagery recorded by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and other satellites.
