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.
Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will each be in opposition this summer allowing for some spectacular viewing opportunities. Come learn about how and when to view them and then take a deep dive in to solar system science. The fulldome show To Worlds Beyond will take us from the fiery surface of the Sun to the icy realm of comets. You will travel to worlds with enormous volcanoes, vast canyons, dazzling rings, and witness storms that would swallow the Earth.
