On Friday 1 June, a new monthly planetarium show will be presented live for the first time at the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre. The Sky Next Month will be an informative and engaging show, guiding you through the upcoming observational highlights of the night sky. The second showing of The Sky Next Month will be on Friday 29 June and it will be presented monthly thereafter.
