Now Featuring 4 Different Weekday Shows!

Our new projector makes every show look great -- so we've scheduled a bigger variety to show it off! See a different show each day, Tuesday through Friday. Check the calendar below for details.

SUN Day on Saturday, June 2!

A FREE celebration of all things solar! From 2 to 4 pm, we'll have solar-powered crafts and treats, demos of solar science toys, a telescope and sunspotter to safely observe the sun, a free dome show about the sun, and more. Come join us for fun in the sun!

Entirely Live!

Take a live tour of this month's night sky, guided by a planetarium staff member. Learn about the stars, planets, constellations and more that you can observe in the next few weeks. Presented on the first Saturday of each month at 7 p.m.
