SHOW DESCRIPTIONS

One World, One Sky with Big Bird & Elmo

Big Bird and Elmo explore the Sun, Moon, and stars from Sesame Street and China. (recorded show, 30 min)

Unseen Universe (NEW)

For millions of years, our view of the heavens was limited by our eyes, allowing us to see only a narrow band of electromagnetic radiation we call visible light. Now, we have the technology that allows us to look at the sky with superhuman sight and accuracy. (recorded show, 30 min)

The Sky Tonight  (live)

Hop through constellations, learn cool star names, and discover where the moon and planets will be in the sky tonight in this live presentation. (live show, 30 min)

Choose Your Space Adventure (live)

With our new Digistar7 system, we can basically turn the planetarium into a pretend spaceship. And we'll take it wherever in the Universe the audience wants to go! (live show, 30 min)

Universe of Light (live, NEW)

A new live show that takes us to the sources of light in the Universe, including invisible light like gamma rays and infrared. (live show, 30 min)
