Students from the Valley and as far away as Zapata county have had the opportunity to see incredible images of stars, planets and constellations shoot into the atmosphere thanks to UTPA's portable planetarium. Since the mobile dome was purchased three years ago with donations from HEB, it has visited about hundred elementary schools and reached out to some 70,000 children. Here is Sandra Quintanilla with this week's NewsCenter 23 report.
