Earth, Moon and Sun: Showing Tuesdays through Fridays September 15 - 30 at 4:15 pm

Explore the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions who has many misconceptions about our home planet and its most familiar neighbors. His confusion about the universe makes viewers think about how the Earth, Moon and Sun work together as a system. Native American stories are used throughout the show to help distinguish between myths and science. Recommended for ages 7 and up; admission just $3 per person.

Voyage to Distant Worlds: Showing Saturdays September 19 & 26 at 7 pm

From the radical temperature differences of Mercury to the mysterious surfaces of the cloud-shrouded gas giants, our solar system is full of fascination. Take a tour of the local planets and discover new worlds in this program produced right here at the Casper Planetarium. Recommended for ages 10 and up. Admission just $3 per person

Halloween: Celestial Origins showing all through October

From the festival of Samhain celebrated by the ancient Celts to the Christian traditions of All Hallows Eve, there’s a lot of history behind Halloween. There’s also astronomy, using constructions like Stonehenge to track the seasons. Learn how legends, science, and tradition combined to create what we know as Halloween. Showing Tuesday through Friday afternoons at 4:15 pm and Saturday evenings at 7 pm. Admission just $3 per person.
