Space is one of life's great 'unknowns' and there's so much still to learn about what goes on outside our planet's atmosphere.

Saturday, the Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium in Duluth is teaching those interested a thing or two about space.

Planetarium directors are excited to provide some activities and tools to help any explorers here on earth learn a little more.

"Of course here at the Planetarium we love astronomy and space so one of our goals is always just to help kindle and foster that fascination within the community," said Planetarium director Jessica Rogers. 

The Planetarium is providing kits to build a spectroscope, participant's own version of the Hubble Space Telescope, alongside guest speakers and a raffle.

They will also be hosting a livestream event tomorrow night from 7 to 9 pm for those who can't attend the afternoon event in person.

More information can be found on their website.
