SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake City’s Clark Planetarium will close for two weeks to make way for the installation of new exhibits.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2c8vjqd ) that the planetarium will be closed Tuesday through Sept. 16. New astronomy and space-science exhibits will be unveiled during a “Ready, Set Re-Launch” party on Oct. 22.

The closure marks the final leg of a long-term project to expand, modernize and make exhibits more interactive.

Planetarium Director Seth Jarvis says some of the new exhibits will be tested out at multiple branches of the Salt Lake City Public Library during the two-week closure.

The planetarium will reopen Sept. 17.
