Upcoming Shows and Times

All shows start with a tour of the nighttime sky as well as some other amazing sights in space using our full-dome Digistar 5 projection system (manufactured by Evans & Sutherland). Many of these are following by a professionally produced dull-dome multimedia shows on various exciting astronomical topics. Throughout the year some of our shows are more extensive nighttime sky tours, giving even more details about the constellations, stars, and planets that you can currently see in the sky.

  1. "The Sky's The Limit" »

    Tuesday Feb 28

    4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

    Come join us as we take you through the night sky, the solar system and the universe for these afternoon shows. Each show will be a bit different and you never know where you'll go!
  2. "Stellar Origins" »

    Tuesday Feb 28

    7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

    What are we made of? Where did that stuff come from? How are we here? These are questions that have been asked by humanity throughout the ages. Many answers have been given by many different schools of thought, but it wasn’t until relatively recently that we’ve been able to provide a scientific answer; stars. Come join us in our planetarium as we fly deep into the cosmos and witness the life and death of the celestial furnaces responsible for all that we see. We will explore the early stages of a star’s life, how it sustains itself, its eventual death, and what that means for life in the universe as we know it.
