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.

7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.DARK is a fulldome show that explains and explores the nature of dark matter, the missing 80% of the mass of the Universe. The search for dark matter is the most pressing astrophysical problem of our time – the solution to which will help us understand why the Universe is as it is, where it came from, and how it has evolved over billions of years. Produced by Peter Morse & Paul Bourke, Dark is presented by Dr Alan Duffy, an astronomer from the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) at the University of Western Australia who creates simulations of Dark Matter evolution inside supercomputers.
