FROM EARTH TO THE UNIVERSE
The night sky has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity’s oldest shared intellectual experience. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. To learn about this journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes, we invite you to experience From Earth to the Universe, a fulldome show from the European Southern Observatory.
A live‑narrated tour of the wonders of the tonight's sky, accompanied by some of the legendary stories of the ancient sky. Find out what constellations and planets are visible tonight and how to find them. This show is updated seasonally and is intended for all ages. Showing Fridays at 7pm. Adults are $6; students, seniors and kids under 12 are $5, all tickets sold at the door.
Learn all the sky watching basics with the fun radio DJs from Radio Aahs. Meet Aahsie and the gang as they happily explain the causes for day & night, moon phases, and the difference between comets and meteors. A great introduction to the night sky!
