By popular demand, we are extending our monthly sky tour shows into the summer. At the beginning of each month, 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.
Going on an Alaskan cruise? Just interested in the many workings of our planet's viewpoints in space? Lands of the Midnight Sun explores the behavior of one of Earth's most mysterious offerings: 24 hours of daylight, and 24 hours of darkness. We will travel to Earth's extreme northerly and southerly latitudes and experience how bizarre and different they are from Buffalo. (Ages 8-adult)
