Space-ing out

Christine Patterson, a naturalist with Hancock Park District, gestures as she explains an aspect of the district’s inflatable planetarium to Dan White, a member of Seneca County Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalists. The OCVN group sat inside the planetarium in the nature center at Seneca County Park District’s Garlo Heritage Nature Preserve while Patterson and her daughter, Allyson, projected the night sky onto the planetarium’s roof and talked about stars, plants, constellations and other sights in space.
