Elmo and Big Bird live in the United States and Hu Hu Zhu lives far away in China, but they discovered that they still see the same stars at night!

The word for star in Chinese is “xing xing” (pronounced sing sing). How many “xing xing” do you see in this sky? Take a look!

Musica: Why is the Universe Beautiful
Saturday, July 9 at 12 noon, 2 PM, and 4 PM
Sunday, July 10 at 1 PM and 3 PM

A flower, the sound of a forest, a sunset, the stars overhead…

A girl is mesmerized by the beauty of Nature and asks, “Why do I sense beauty?”

A quiet pianist who calls himself “Musica” shows her the common elements hiding in both music and Nature. And so begins the endless conversation she has with Musica… and the Universe.

Seating for all shows is limited and first-come-first-serve. The ISU Planetarium is located in the Felmley Hall of Science Annex, at the corner of College Avenue and School Street in Normal. For more information, please call the ISU Physics Department at (309) 438-8756.
