We’ve had a great reaction to our new-show-every-week schedule this summer at the Casper Planetarium. But we didn’t forget that this is the 50th anniversary of the first human Moon landing. We have 4 Moon-themed shows that are running all summer!
On Tuesdays at 11 am, we show Larry Cat in Space. Kids will pick up lots of Moon facts as they enjoy the adventures of a curious feline who stows away when his owner accepts a job on the Moon.
Tuesdays at 4 pm, it’s Back to the Moon for Good. Learn about the X Prize offered for advances in lunar landing technology as teams from around the world race to achieve new breakthroughs in science.
Saturdays at 7 pm, we have CAPCOM GO — The Apollo Story. Relive the days when everyone turned their eyes to the Moon and the whole world held its breath as humans went where they had never gone before.
Saturdays at 8 pm, see Dawn of the Space Age, a tribute to the courage and science that first carried us off the planet and across the threshold of outer space.
All shows include a short star talk about objects to look for in the current night skies; admission is $3 per person, cash or check only please.
