This spring, we are pairing our popular monthly sky tours with astronomy topic talks and full dome planetarium shows. We will take you on a tour of the current skies, highlighting visible planets, deep sky objects, and any upcoming special astronomical events. Once you've had your introductory tour, feel free to ask your astronomy questions! We'll use our state of the art planetarium visualization system to take you to see objects of curiosity and wonder. Each evening will conclude with an immersive planetarium presentation about a different astronomical topic.
