LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Monsters will fill the skies over Louisville this October. At least they’ll fill the dome of the Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium.

    The planetarium at the University of Louisville will present “Fright Light,” a slightly spooky and fun program for children, Fridays at 8 p.m.

    The program features laser images to match music such as “Purple People Eater,” “Thriller,” “Monster Mash” and “Frankenstein.”

    “This show is designed to be fun for kids of all ages, so it’s more silly than scary,” said planetarium director Shawn Laatsch. “But older children will enjoy it too.”

    Admission is $5 for children up to age 14; $8 for adults; and $6 for senior citizens and U of L students or employees.
