Planetarium Shows
PUBLISHED
Live planetarium shows for all ages
You can have a stellar experience that brings space to life! We combine the best of both planetarium presentations and hands-on activities on a variety of astronomy and science topics. Our new Digitarium Delta 4 Digital Planetarium System allows us to fly to all the planets, their moons, and several Dwarf Planets. Our planetarium makes celestial bodies appear and move realistically to simulate the complex motions of the heavens. 

Mobile Planetarium
Our planetarium can come to you! If you're hosting an event, we can make it that much more entertaining and interesting with our planetarium. Our dome's capacity is 20 adult, or 25 elementary school kids. If your event has more people, we can run shows consecutively.
