Experience the night sky in glowing detail during the day at the Victor Harbor Library on Friday, August 16.

A StarLab portable planetarium will be set up in the library and people can go inside to see a simulation of the night sky in the Southern Hemisphere.

The event is part of National Science Week, which is August 10 to 18, and the planetarium is for both children and adults to explore.

This year's National Science Week theme is 'Destination Moon: more missions, more science', in line with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.

StarLab sessions at the library are from 3.45pm to 4.30pm for children aged eight to 14, and 4.40pm to 5.25pm for ages 15 and up.

Bookings are essential - visit www.victor.sa.gov.au/library and follow the 'Events' menu to Eventbrite, or call 8551 0730.

The library received an Inspiring South Australia grant through the 2019 Regional Small Grants Program, which aims to create awareness of the importance of science, innovation and potential science-related careers.
