Planetarium Show Times

During this phase of our reopening, The Planetarium is featuring two presentations that make the most of our new, state-of-the-art Planetarium software and projection system:

  • “Mars Revealed” is our newest show in The Planetarium. In this 10-minute narrated tour, we’ll fly you from Earth to the Martian surface where you’ll discover some of the geographical features that could indicate whether life ever existed on the Red Planet. You’ll be fascinated by the only other planet in our solar system with a solid surface, polar ice caps, an atmosphere, and weather – Mars, of course!

  • “Flight Through Our Solar System” is a 10-minute narrated tour that begins at the sun then travels through our solar system — including the asteroid belt — past Pluto and the other outer planets, until we arrive at the icy outer reaches of the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud, located on the outer fringe of our solar system.
