One of the best parts of living at Dirigo Pines is our proximity to the University of Maine and all their great shows and offerings. Have you checked out the Emera Astronomy Center yet? Our residents recently took a trip to experience “Expedition Reef.” This full-dome planetarium show provides an up-close look at a part of our planet many people have never experienced, exploring the secrets of the “rainforests of the sea” and embarking on an oceanic safari to the world’s most vibrant and endangered marine ecosystems – coral reefs.
The Emera Astronomy Center is open to the public and very affordable. Tickets for planetarium programs are $6 for adults, $5 for UMaine students, veterans and seniors, and $4 for children under 12. Tickets may be purchased online, by phone at 207.581.1341, or at the ticket box office prior to the show. The Expedition Reef show is going on through Jan. 25.
