The Indian River State College Hallstrom Planetarium at the main campus in Fort Pierce will host two holiday shows: "Star of Wonder," a Treasure Coast favorite, and a special live one-day holiday event, "Yuletides."
The planetarium show, "Star of Wonder," will recreate the skies as they appeared 2,000 years ago. Viewers will trace what may have been the path of the mysterious star followed by the wise men, showing the constellations and the locations of planets.

The special live one-day concert, "Yuletides," will feature electronic music "under the planetarium stars" by composer and artist, Jonn Serrie.
Mr. Serrie will perform live on keyboards as Jon U. Bell, Hallstrom Planetarium director, projects special effects of stars and stellar beacons on the planetarium dome all choreographed to the music.
"Yuletides" will be presented on Dec. 15 at 4 and 8 p.m. Tickets are $12.
