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.
