Fall Show times!
Our Planetarium shows will be listed on the Museums Calendar on the website.
Each day will feature two different shows across eight show times. Please check in advance what shows will be showing on the day of your visit. Thanks!
Venus & Jupiter – Will be bright jewels in the early morning sky, and sit side by side. Venus will be in the constellation of Leo the lion and Jupiter nearby in the constellation of Cancer the crab.
Mars & Saturn – Are the lone evening planets this month. On September 28th it may be difficult to see Mars, as the Moon will be rather close to it in the sky. Saturn, Mars, and the Moon make a lovely trio in the sky this month on several evenings.
Mercury – is close to the bright star Spica in the early evening as the Sun sets.
