Saturday Night Dome Shows

At 7 pm, discover the history and astronomy behind our Christmas traditions in "Season of Light." At 8, take a tour of the universe featuring stunning photos from the Hubble Space Telescope and other great observatories in "Cosmic Journey."

The Light Before Christmas

After losing their way on a cold, blustery Christmas eve, two children are rescued by their friend the Candleman.  Magically, the children become characters in "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," where they learn the light of Christmas comes from the giver of all good gifts. Playing at 4:15 pm Tuesdays, Wednesday, Thursdays, and Fridays in December.

Scroll Down for our Calendar of Public Shows
