The Moon has always fired our imagination.
Imagine the Moon explores how the Moon has inspired human creativity, learning, and exploration ever since we have looked to the sky.
Each discovery has brought new opportunities to contemplate and imagine, until, driven by dreams, we left Earth and went there in the amazing journeys that culminated in astronauts walking on the Moon. People have imagined the Moon as a glowing disk in the sky, a destination in space, and a world that shares its origin with the Earth. The power of human imagination continues to inspire our relationship with the Moon as our partner in space and companion in our sky.
Filled with stunningly beautiful images, this new show from Chicago’s Adler Planetarium will remind you why the Moon inspires everyone from novelists to nuclear scientists. Let it inspire you, too! Imagine the Moon plays on Saturdays at 7 pm (except the first Saturday of each month, when we do an extended live star talk). Running time is about 25 minutes, and tickets are $3 per person (cash or check only, please).
NOTE: On December 21, we will present our Christmas show, Season of Light, in place of Imagine the Moon.
