This week, you can take your family and friends to one of many indoor events happening across the Inland Northwest, but make sure you check the weather before heading out. 

A major storm hits the northwest today, bringing widespread snow, wind, and a lot of rain. A High Wind Watch has been issued for a majority of the Inland Northwest from Friday afternoon to Saturday morning. More snow is expected for Sunday night and into Monday and with high temperatures in the upper 20s and lows in the mid-10s.

Some of the events you can attend this week are the Spokane Falls Community College Planetarium, the Davenport Grand Terrace Igloos, the Native American Heritage Month at the Northern Quest Resort & Casino, or an indoor fair market.

Spokane Falls Community College Planetarium

The Voyage Solar System is blasting off at Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC).

This fall, the college’s astronomy department installed a scaled model of the solar system that spans the entire SFCC campus, starting with the sun in the Northeast corner near the Science building and ending with Pluto where the main walkway intersects with Elliot Drive.

Besides a trip to the planets, SFCC’s Planetarium is hosting its first public show since the start of the pandemic. The show will be held from Friday, Nov. 4 through Sunday, Nov. 6. As part of the showing, attendees will see a tour of the night sky and a movie in the Planetarium’s big dome. 

Tickets for the public show are $7 for adults and $5 for children 3-18 and Community Colleges of Spokane students with valid ID. Tickets can be purchased on the Planetarium’s webpage. The Planetarium is in the Science Building, building number 28, room 142, on the SFCC campus located at 3410 W Whistalks Way in Spokane.
