TULSA, OK -- Tulsans got to see the stars in a whole new way Saturday night.

The Air and Space Museum is participating in the 100 Hours of Astronomy, a worldwide event commemorating the 400th anniversary of Galileo using a telescope to study the sky.

The planetarium set up some telescopes so Tulsans could check out some constellations and planets and then it was on to a much bigger show.

"We might take a look at how big the universe is, planets that orbit around other stars or just a general tour of outer space," planetarium director Chris Pagan said.

The event was free with a canned food item. The planetarium is trying to help stock the shelves at the Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma in this time of need.
