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.
Now that the fireworks are over, come to the planetarium and explore the fascinating realm of visible light, the spectrum and the science of spectroscopy. We will share the fulldome feature Cosmic Origins Spectrograph and then do some hands-on experiments under the dome using diffraction glasses and more! Afterward, we will explore the brilliant stars and notable constellations of the summertime.
