New Fall Show Schedule Is Now Running

Back-to-school time also means new shows for the Fall. "We Are Aliens" plays Tuesdays through Fridays at 4:15 pm. "Imagine the Moon" plays Saturdays at 7 pm, and "Explore" is Saturdays at 8 pm. Admission is just $3 per person, cash or check only please.

We Are Aliens!

The human race is connected better than ever before, but could we one day be part of a galactic community sharing our knowledge and ideas? Or is Earth the only planet with life? This show takes you on an epic ride in the hunt for the evidence of alien life. Rupert Grint narrates this fun mix of science and entertainment, playing Tuesdays through Fridays at 4:15 pm. Click anywhere in this block for more info and a trailer.

Imagine the Moon

"Imagine the Moon" explores how the Moon has inspired human creativity, learning, and exploration ever since we have looked to the sky. See this visually beautiful, thought-provoking, and inspiring show on Saturday evenings at 7 pm (except the first Saturday of each month, when we present an expanded star talk about objects to look for in the night skies). Click anywhere in this block for details and a trailer.

Explore

What Johannes Kepler discovered hundreds of years ago about celestial motion enables us to accurately send spacecraft to the Moon, Mars, and beyond today. "Explore" combines history, astronomy, and the wonders of exploration in a visually stunning experience. See this show at 8 pm on Saturdays. Click anywhere in this block for more details and a trailer.

Entirely Live!

At 7 pm on the first Saturday of each month, planetarium staff will take you on an extended survey of what you can see in the current night skies -- planets, stars, constellations and more, along with the stories behind them. Click in this box for a link to access sky charts that you can use at home to help find and identify celestial objects.
